Top of Summerhill/Blackberry lane

Would it be possible to make it safer to cross the roads in this area? Perhaps the pavements at the bottom of Blackberry Lane could be extended (as you have done at the bottom of junctions on main road in Onchan) in order to give pedestrians better vision of vehicles coming up and down. It would also slow vehicles down when they make the turn off Summerhill left into Blackberry lane as they wouldn’t be able to just “sweep” left they would have to slow right down to make the turn.

Why the contribution is important

It is very dangerous crossing the road in this area. Vehicles travel far too quickly up Summerhill perhaps this would help to make it safer to cross and slow the traffic down?

    I agree with you. I live in the neighbourhood and I feel it is an unsafe place to cross the road. If it was safer I would suggest it to my kids as the best route to walk to SN Lower School. Could we also put a path through the horses field from Summerhill to Blackberry Lane to shorten the route and cut the corner for pedestrians. Lets make direct routes for pedestrians!
