Road safety at Knowle Lane-Hoober Avenue-Haugh Lane junction

We the undersigned petition the council to prevent injury, accident, or loss of life, we want barriers to be placed at the junction to protect pedestrians if a vehicle leaves the road, as well as Stop signs at the junctions where Haugh Lane and Hoober Avenue join Knowle Lane.

Over the last few years there have been many crashes at the Haugh Lane-Knowle Lane-Hoober Avenue cross-road junction. 

Due to the nature of the junction on a steep slope from Haugh Avenue to Hoober Avenue, the direction of traffic and the location close to several schools, cars often don’t stop to see if traffic is approaching as they cross or turn here. This has resulted in accidents, damage to garden walls at the junction and cars being written off. 

Accidents often occur at peak times in rush hour or during the school run when these roads become much busier than during the rest of the day. This is also the time when many families with young children are walking past this junction to and from school. The junction is very close to three big schools (300m to Ecclesall Primary, 200m to High Storrs Secondary, 700m to Silverdale Secondary school) and a popular meeting place for children and parents walking to school.
