Why not put lights on this crossing. There have been many near misses here!
Aynam Road is just a race track and the police fail to take any interest.

There are lights on the posts but they are not bright enough, the tree on the right hand side stops you seeing any person waiting to cross as the trunk hides their silhouette if you are in the left hand lane.

I'm not surprised that this has happened. The road signs as to which lane is which aren't in the right position - they are too far along the road instead of at the start. Many drivers seem to think that the right hand lane is an overtaking lane, and the tree obscures people wanting to use the crossing. This combination of problems means that sometimes drivers don't see the crossing in time or think they have to stop at it because of the lack of signage etc. I've seen a few near misses there. It's an easy problem for the Council to resolve.
