Campaigners calling for a crossing so children can walk to school safely in Earley have presented a petition to councillors.
Anthony Vick and mum Sylvia Reid presented the 427-signature document demanding a crossing in Kilnsea Drive, Lower Earley, to Wokingham Borough Council at its meeting on Thursday, September 20.
Mr Vick, said: “Ask almost any parent of young children and they’ll tell you how dangerous it can be crossing Kilnsea Drive with young children.
“Children have to cross it almost every day on their way to school and the park, that’s why we were more than willing to help parents when they asked us to do something and make the road safer.” Families would like the crossing to be situated close to the Hornbeam Drive turn
