Calls for crossing on busy road
A ZEBRA crossing needs to be installed by a Worle school before there is a serious incident on the road outside, local action team members say.
A ZEBRA crossing needs to be installed by a Worle school 'before there is a serious incident' on the road outside, local action team members say.
The North Worle group is hoping to gather thousands of signatures on a petition calling for the safety feature to be put in on St Marks' Road as soon as possible.
Local action team (LAT) chairman Peter Hardaway says although the suggestion for the measure outside St Mark's Primary School has been on the local authority's agenda for some time, it is the first time he and other volunteers have got involved.
He said: "It is an extremely busy area throughout the day and there have been accidents there already.
You may also want to watch:
"The way people park makes it difficult sometimes for parents and children to cross the road and a crossing would also resolve this.
"The children are at risk and if North Somerset Council does not do something it will continue to be a dangerous area.

"Action needs to be taken before there is a serious incident.
"There are also a lot of older people's bungalows in that area and residents need to cross the road to get to the shops.
"So, I am hoping for up to 2,500 signatures on the petition."
St Mark's Primary School children are producing a poster to go on the petition.
Once North Worle LAT has received it members will go round the houses in the area to gather support.
