Our traffic engineers have agreed to carry out an assessment of this location for an upgrade to a formal crossing. As part of a crossing assessment we need to carry out what is known as the PV2 test. This related to the ration of pedestrians seeking to cross at this location in relation to the number of vehicles passing. If the site does not meet the criteria a crossing cannot be installed. From the engineers site observations there a several points where pedestrians cross and if there was a controlled crossing then it is likely that this behaviour will continue. Once we have the results of the counts, if they meet the criteria, we can then pursue the design of a controlled crossing along with a road safety audit. If a viable scheme can be designed (sight lines etc will need to be considered) we will then seek funding for the work.
