New pedestrian crossing gets the go ahead

 Published on: 17th February 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

The parish council are delighted after it was announced that works are set to start on a new pedestrian crossing at a busy Chorleywood junction. Chorleywood Parish Council (CWPC) have been lobbying for a crossing at the junction of the A404 and Common Road for more than a decade and, after financial contributions, finally have their wish. Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) will commence works on the lights at the junction on March 11. A parish council spokesperson told My Chorleywood and Loudwater News: “HCC approached the parish council last year asking if we would be prepared to make a financial contribution towards the scheme. “CWPC resolved to contribute £10,000. This was matched by Hertfordshire county councillor, Chris Hayward, from his locality budget and Friends of Chorleywood Common also donated £500 towards the scheme. I understand that the whole scheme will cost about £68,000. “The lights will be on a phased setting and will only be activated when pedestrians wish to cross. This is the same system as the lights on the junction of the A404/Solesbridge Lane/Dog Kennel Lane junction.” Chairman of the parish council, cllr Tony Edwards, has carried out research and in one morning over 150 children crossed the road at this junction either going to St Clement Danes School or Christ Church. He said: “I think it’s essential that we have a safe pedestrian crossing not only for the school children but for all residents of Chorleywood. The parish council are delighted that this scheme is going ahead.” What do you think of the proposed new pedestrian crossing? Is there anyone else in the village you would like to see a similar crossing? Email anthony@mynewsmag.co.uk
