Timing of staged crossing for peds/cyclists

Reported anonymously at 19:28, Thursday 23 September 2021

That it takes 5 separate crossings to get from the off road shared path from the new housing to cross Winterstoke Road and get to Ashton Road/Greville Smyth Park is only the beginning of the problems on the crossing. The wait times for peds/cyclists are abysmal. I have grown old and died waiting for the green lights on the toucan crossings to change. Because they are so insensitive to people wanting to cross, the lights are often ignored (terrifyingly by children) as they try to get across the road. The lack of visibility and speed of some vehicles entering and departing the industrial estate adds to the sense of jeopardy. Overgrown shrubs need hacking back urgently to improve visibility. Please reconsider giving residents of Ashton Rise a safer, less irritating experience of traveling on foot and by bike to destinations across Winterstoke, by adjusting the timings (especially at off peak times) so they are more favourable to peds/cyclists. Maintenance of the current shared path also needs urgent attention to stop encroachment of shrubs starting to destroy the edges of the path. Thank you.
