Big improvements to Malew Street, Castletown

Make Malew Street, Castletown, safe for pedestrians.

Why the contribution is important

Currently the street suffers from irresponsible drivers and dog owners and pavements much to small for anything other than treacherous single file. This makes it dangerous for anyone with a young child or pushchair and old aged people with walking sticks or other aids.

Coupled with this the pavements are usually littered with dog feaces from irresponsible dog owners this makes the street an accident waiting to happen.

My opinion about this, which could be carried over to other areas of the town, is that malew street should be one way to traffic with a strict 5mph speed limit and that one side should have its pavement extended.

The street itself is mainly used by padestrians at the moment as residents cannot park on it due to double yellow lines but many vehicle drivers use it as a 'quick short cut' through town and most of these are at speeds unsafe for both themselves, other drivers and pedestrians.
