Pedestrian crossings at Shire Way - and a little history

Glad to see that our pedestrian crossings on Shire Way are operating - here's Cllr Dan Clark checking out the crossing to Wapley. Hopefully they'll not only make crossing the road easier, they'll also keep traffic speeds down a bit.

We thought you might like to see how the Government introduced these new-fangled things in the late 1940s. Notice that they don't yet have zebra stripes in this early public information film.
