A MEETING to discuss the possibility of a crossing near a secondary school in Worle will take place on Tuesday.

People have been campaigning for a new crossing across Wansbrough Road, outside of Priory Community School, for more than a year.

An online petition received more than 350 signatures in support of a crossing, with campaigners saying students from the school, and other people living in the area, are ‘dicing with death’ to avoid ‘constant’ traffic.

North Worle councillor Marcia Pepperall has said the problem has worsened since improvements were made to junction 21, with an increased traffic flow making it difficult to cross the road.

But the crossing could be one step closer to reality now, as council highways officer Vicki Horvath is set to meet with campaigners at the next North Worle Forum meeting.

She will present potential solutions to the problem and people will be able to share their views on what they would like to be put in place at Wansbrough Road.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, at Priory Community School in Queensway. It will begin at 7pm.
