The road markings forming the pedestrian crossing in Broad Street are badly faded and are not sufficiently visible for approaching vehicles. This is a road safety hazard. The pedestrian crossing forms part of a busy walking route for mums in nearby Station Road bringing and collecting their young children to and from Earls Barton Junior School, There are many incidences where drivers have approached the crossing at a faster speed than normal.
