Safer access to Swinley Forest

We the undersigned petition the council to Implement some kind of traffic control system so that people and their dogs can safely cross the road to access Swinley Forest. Specifically at the roundabout connecting New Forest Ride and Savernake Way.

Now, more than ever, people are seeking outdoor spaces to exercise and Swinley Forest has become very popular due to its proximity to housing and the vast amount of space it offers to explore.

For a lot of people, the easiest access is via the gate next to the roundabout and there is no safe way to cross. Drivers hardly touch the brakes when approaching and using the roundabout and visibility for pedestrians is poor.

A set of traffic lights or zebra crossing would provide a much needed safe place to cross.

This ePetition runs from 28/02/2021 to 31/05/2021.
