While working on refurbishments at Shaw Lodge Flats for several months we have had to use the crossing outside on Shaw Hill several times a day.
This must be the most dangerous crossing in Halifax, cars come downhill from Huddersfield Road at speeds of 30-40mph and up from Halifax from Water Lane roundabout at top speeds.
I have been on the middle of the crossing a few times when cars have failed to stop and are oblivious to anyone on the crossing, driving straight through, to say there is a block of flats for older people outside the crossing which equals approximately 85 dwellings.
To have no pelican crossing or speed humps on this stretch of road is a disgrace.
Surely other people have complained to road safety?
The crossing also has ancient ‘Belisha Beacons’ which are supposed to be lit up. It is only a matter of time before there will be a fatal accident here.
