An online petition has been set up to get a crossing on a Stapleford danger road.

Cllr Richard MacRae is collecting signatures after concerned residents tipped him off about the problems on Pasture Road.

He said: “It’s terrible there and something needs to be done before there is an accident.

“It is a very busy road and with it being right outside Albany School it is used a lot so any help that can be given to make it safe has to be a good idea.

“As Stapleford North Ward Councillor for the area I get more and more contact from concerned residents who want to see action taken.”

A crossing patrol is in place outside the school but Richard is rallying Nottinghamshire County Council and says more needs to be done.

He added: “My concern is during the holidays we have no crossing in place for children to cross safely to get to numerous play parks in our area.”

Sign the petition by visiting and search Pasture Road Stapleford.
