Petition for East Sussex Council to investigate and implement safety measures for the station footpath crossing area on Cornwallis Terrace.

We the undersigned petition the council to investigate and find solutions to the danger faced by pedestrians crossing Cornwallis Terrace at the footpath to Station Approach.

The area where Braybrooke Rd meets Cornwallis Terrace at the Railway bridge is a very popular crossing point, as it is necessary to cross there to access the footpath leading to Hastings railway station and the Town Centre. People from the Braybrooke, Linton Road, Linton Crescent, Cornwallis, Winterbourne Close and Amherst Road areas all use this place to cross, as there is no other safe or convenient crossing point in the vicinity.

This area of road is on a bend and has a steep gradient, as well as having a railway bridge going over it. All together these elements make visibility extremely poor and together with vehicles passing at high speeds, make this an extremely dangerous place to cross. It is particularly concerning that many school children have to cross there.

There should be measures in place to mitigate the danger posed in this area before a serious accident occurs. We urge East Sussex County Council to investigate this matter and implement a viable and effective solution that will make this area safer for pedestrians.
