Frees Avenue 40mph limit: Extend to beyond Cemetery opening

 

Sirs,

 

It has been brought to my attention that there was an accident in Frees Avenue recently which resulted in injury and trauma to a local Grandmother and her young eight year old Granddaughter.  They had gone for a walk with the granddaughter's dog over the Common.

 

Opposite the entrance to the Cemetery there is a gap in the bank to enable pedestrians to exit the Common.  They stood in the gap and decided it was safe to cross.

 

Unfortunately they did not see that there was a car approaching from the direction of Rockley as it was obscured by the hedge to their right.  The little girl and the dog were dragged along by the car which resulted in the death of the dog and a broken leg to the little girl which required an operation.  

 

As you are aware the new 40mph limit signs are located to the south of the Cemetery entrance and therefore cars at the place of the accident in question can legally drive at 60mph.  I believe that we must try and extend the 40mph limit to beyond the Cemetery entrance, but may I urge the Town Council to remove the hedge which obscures oncoming traffic to enable pedestrians crossing the road to see traffic approaching in plenty of time.

 

Yours,

 

 

Stewart Dobson

Wiltshire Councillor - Marlborough East
