  • Thank you for your report. We have added the faded markings to our forward programme for refurbishment. With regard to the request for additional railings, the request has been noted and observations will be made when school resumes, to assess the situation. You don’t say whether any particular approach to the crossing is worse, or if all would benefit from railings. It may be difficult to add railings opposite depending on the location of driveways, but observations will help us assess this.
