Crossing Problems!

  
Lucas and I went on a mini-adventure yesterday. We visited Pokesdown Station to look at trains *yawn*.

We had a difficult time trying to cross the road outside the station. He’s an excellent independent traveller, but the crossings were unsafe. 

He has written this complaint to Bournemouth Borough Council:

“Dear Council, I am a blind 13 year old boy. Yesterday, we were crossing Christchurch Road to get to Pokesdown Station (opposite the green), and the pedestrian crossing stayed green for a few seconds only, meaning it was very unsafe for me to cross. The crossing also has no beep, so the time taken to feel the tactile cone means even less time to get over the road. Both the crossings had the same problem! Can you get someone to have a look at the crossing and see what that can do?

Thanks,

Lucas ” 

Looking forwards to their response!
