Very dangerous pedestrian crossing

Reported anonymously at 10:31, Tue 10 December 2019

I previously reported this but the issue was closed with nothing further done which is clearly unacceptable. The crossing over the A40 to the new housing development at Barton Fields is currently extremely dangerous. The cars fly by often at speeds in excess of 80mph and even just pressing the button on the crossing feels life threatening. Several times I have seen children run towards the crossing and have to be grabbed by their parents to ensure they do not go into the road and get hit by a vehicle. I understand that originally there were plans to build a cycle/footbridge there. Please could you apply some pressure to ensure this or an underpass is built. The current setup is really unacceptable particularly since so many more homes will be built there. Almost all the other crossings of the ring-road have either a bridge or an underpass. If a bridge or underpass will not be built, which would be a gross act of negligence, then at least a lowering of the speed limit to 40mph enforced by speed cameras in both directions MUST be implemented.
