There is one very dangerous crossing on Magazine Gap Road right by Brewin Path.

Currently all that is there is an island in the middle of the road. My children, as well as many others, must cross there twice a day going to and coming from school. The traffic volume is very high on Magazine Gap Road.

In order to cross, the children must wait until there is a small break in the traffic and quickly cross to the island, where they must again wait until there is another brief gap. I feel that a proper pedestrian crossing with a light should be put there for the safety of the children. This crossing in its present state, is an accident waiting to happen.

I would be grateful if the relevant government department would do something.
