Someone is going to die at this crossing, say councillors

UPDATE, June 12, 2013, 4.40pm: Go to FULL STORY to read an extract of the emailed account of a "near fatal accident" Cr Martin sent to her fellow councillors on the night of June 6.

 

It is only a matter of time before someone will be killed at the new pedestrian crossing just south of Heavitree Gap, councillors told MHR Warren Snowdon last night. Deputy Mayor Liz Martin said she has seen children jumping from the top of the ramp wall onto the highway and also observed a "near fatal accident" involving a triple road train, which could have claimed many lives. KIERAN FINNANE reports on this and other council news.
