Woodthorpe Roundabout Road Crossing Improvements

We the undersigned petition the Council to Improve the safety of the Cycle Lane, part of Sustrans route 6, crossings at Woodthorpe Roundabout Loughborough

Despite a similar e-petition being submitted over 10 years ago, and considerable subsequent further developments, including housing and an Aldi store, nothing has been done to improve the safety for cyclists and pedestrians crossing Allandale Road or Woodthorpe High Street. Traffic coming from Terry Yardley Way is a particular concern, as vehicles are often travelling at high speed but fail to indicate when turning left onto Allandale Road. Regardless of direction, traffic at this roundabout is very busy especially during the daytime, and is a major disincentive to pedestrians and cyclists using the crossings.
I strongly urge the Council to consider applying black and white-stripe zebra crossing-style markings, together with signage warning motorists to slow down and beware of pedestrians and cyclists crossing.
