The Executive Director for Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report on the receipt of a petition from residents, asking the Council to introduce a zebra crossing, near St Josephs College, on Upper Redlands Road.

The petition read as follows:

We, the undersigned, petition Reading Borough Council to install a zebra crossing near St Joseph's College on Upper Redlands Road.

The report explained that the request for this measure had been captured on the Requests for Traffic Management Measure Report that was a regular item on the agenda and the report submitted to the previous meeting (Minute 18 refers) referred to this request as follows:

‘A modest private contribution has been raised toward the development of the requested zebra crossing on Upper Redlands Road.  Officers have arranged to meeting with the lead fundraisers to discuss expectations and can conduct some high-level design work as a result.’

The scheme was also included in the Traffic Management Measures – CIL Funded Schemes, see Minute 31 below.  At this time the scheme remained unfunded.

Resolved –

(1)     That the report be noted;

(2)     That the lead petitioner be provided with a copy of the report.
