  • I reported this over 1 month ago and it has still NOT been sorted. As you can imagine it is very dangerous to have to cross the road and then back again at this junction. With the dark nights this is even worse now. Can you please advise.

  • I first reported this issue back on 6th October. I suspect the only way this will get sorted will be when a parent with a buggy is involved in an accident trying to avoid the area. I know times are strange but cannot believe this is taking so long to sort.
