Hullbridge Road Crossing Petition

Hullbridge Road, next to Lubards Farm

We have been asked several times in the past about having a pedestrian crossing in Hullbridge Road , next to Lubards Farm. Lots of people visit the facilities there such as Happy Days Nursery , the swimming pool, or the Mushroom Theatre. It can be a busy location…

However we’ve never been able to get this done – partly because of money and partly because it doesn’t match the County Council criteria (eg there is no footway on one side of the road). The county also like to install crossings where many people are already crossing the road . That doesn’t happen here because people are too wary of the traffic! We aware of at least one adult being knocked down here.

However there is a chance of getting this crossing finally agreed this year and to show how much it is needed we are arranging a petition for people to sign – it should be available at some of the premises at the Farm. We will confirm soon…
