We did

As a result of the support of the proposal, the Deputy City Mayor has approved the implementation of the scheme. Work was due to start on site in October 2022 and has now been completed.


We are proposing the introduction of a new zebra crossing to help pedestrians cross Scraptoft Lane between New Romney Crescent and Bowhill Grove. There is currently no provision for safe road crossing in this area.

This section of road is used by local residents using the bus service and visiting shops, and also pupils walking to and from Scraptoft Valley Primary School.

The proposed zebra crossing will be put onto a road hump and speed cushions will be installed near to the junctions with New Romney Crescent and Bowhill Grove to help reduce the speed of traffic around the zebra crossing.

We would like to hear your views on the proposed crossing.
