Barrowford petition for zebra crossing


Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson has presented a petition to Parliament signed by more than 100 Barrowford residents calling for a zebra crossing on the A682 near to Barrowford Primary School.

Worried parents and residents joined together to express their view that the road-crossing is a danger to children at the school, especially when the road gets busy during pick-up and drop-off times.

After passing the petition on to Mr Stephenson, the MP has taken up the issue with Lancashire County Council as well as putting the petition “in the bag”.

Speaking from Westminster, Mr Stephenson said: “I was pleased to be able to present the petition to the House of Commons as many people have expressed their concerns through the petition.

“The matter will now be looked into by the Government and by the local transport authority.

“Often, petitions are the work of a dedicated individual who wants to see change.

“I want to pay tribute to those who organised the petition, collecting signatures and making sure road safety near schools is taken seriously.”
