Call for crossing on busy Castel road

News | Published:

CALLS are being made to install a pedestrian crossing along a busy Castel road as one resident warned people were risking their lives every time they cross it.

Ross Le Brun, 38, has lived in Ruette de la Perruque for the past 10 years and has long been concerned about the safety along Le Villocq, near the telephone box.

With bus stops on either side of the road and Saumarez Park nearby, he said it was a popular place for people to cross.

Since becoming a father six weeks ago, Mr Le Brun's worries have intensified, and now he wants to see the States do something about it.

'Every time you cross it you're taking a gamble because you can't see around the corners,' the self-employed businessman said.

'The other day my partner and I wanted to walk the baby to Saumarez Park. We got halfway across the road and then a car came around the corner and we had to the pull the pram back.

'I would now rather drive the pram to Saumarez Park than walk there. How is that going to benefit the environment if people are forced to drive to the park?

'Something needs to be done – we are just waiting for an accident to happen.'
