I wonder if after this unfortunate and shocking incident, something will finally be done about this crossing and the speeding on this road. As a local resident I have been in a number of "near misses" whilst crossing the road at the zebra crossing; even when I was pushing a pram. I have also witnessed some near misses with drivers speeding across the zebra crossing as though it isn't there. It is a residential area with schools close by. Do we have to wait until a child is killed before anyone does anything about this? I suggest a crossing that lights up to make it more visible (why couldn't that have been done during one of the recent road closures?) and traffic calming measures. I'm told that calming measures won't be put in place as this would impede the speed of emergency vehicles to the east of the island. Sounds like a lame excuse to me.
