Safer School Crossing and Cycleways

Some cars accelerate to get through the chicanes at the top of Preston Road. There is also speeding at the bottom end, and there has been a fatality. I would like to see a safer  crossing point near Thameside School and other measures to slow down traffic. I would like to see at the very least a speed indicator.

There has been no progress on improving cycle ways from Caldecott through the town centre in many years. I will see whether a working party could be set up to look at this again. Cyclists get on the pavements along the Drayton Road, and then risk being knocked off by cars coming out onto the Drayton Road from side roads. The Wilsham Road is clogged with parked cars and dangerous for cyclists.
