Councillors are pushing for a pedestrian crossing to be installed on the A41 at Berryfields ‘immediately’.

A crossing has already been agreed for the road near the development but a petition signed by 103 people was presented to the Greater Aylesbury Local Forum for one to be installed immediately.

It said that many people have to cross the road to access the doctors surgery, shops and school.

UKIP leader and district councillor Chris Adams: “It’s quite dangerous there with cars swerving in and out. I would have thought Bucks County Council would have made it a priority.”

County council said £100,000 is set aside for local transport improvements but it does not have funding to carry out a feasibility study unless the forum agrees that it is a local priority.

If agreed then the forum can make a decision on whether money is pledged towards the crossing.
