I am calling for Wigan Council to install a pedestrian crossing on Mesnes Road outside the Brockett Public House. There are a number of reasons why this crossing is much needed in this location to protect residents and pedestrians alike.
Mesnes Road is a long straight where cars a notorious for speeding. By having a Pedestrian crossing there this will help to lower the risk of some one having an accident.
More importantly though when people that visit the pub and then call for a taxi they travel up from Wigan and they cannot not park outside the pub so they do a u-turn and then park outside the shop opposite the Brockett. By doing this they block the island crossing that is currently there. This makes crossing the road even harder than what it is.
With this in mind I have asked Wigan Council to look at putting in a pedestrian here to make the crossing safer. A survey was survey was carried out last week and Wigan Council are now looking at the results.
