Do you have any further comments or concerns about the location and/or operation of the crossings?

Comments:My main concern about the proposal is not the crossing itself, but the impact it will have on the surrounding residential area. The proposed routes have park entrances, schools and shops all used by parents and children. Without any clear plans for mitigating the dangers that the proposed routes would bring to these people I would strongly object and campaign against these plans.
