Many residents, over a number of years, have thought that more traffic safety measures in the vicinity of where Bury Road becomes Market Street in Tottington is needed to make crossing the road in peak traffic hours much safer.
Tottington Councillors have requested that Bury Council look into installing a pedestrian crossing/island on numerous occasions but they have always declined to do so.
More recently with the arrival of a new petrol station on Market Street, local residents have been calling for this given the much increased traffic volumes. Our latest request to the Council for this has been declined once again. Therefore, we have set up this petition to show them the strength of feeling on this matter which will hopefully get them to reconsider this.
