OVER a hundred residents from Sherfield Road in Grays have signed a petition requesting “Kill your speed” signs along the road.
Sherfield Road leads out of Grays over the bridge, down to Grays beach. Sherfield Road runs perpendicular to New Road, the home of Thurrock Council’s civic offices.
Presenting the residents petition at full council, ward councillor Martin Healy said: “Motorists travelling southbound along Sherfield towards Grays Beach are approaching the pedestrian crossing too quickly.
There are a lot of elderly residents living on Seabrooke Rise who use the pedestrian crossing and they are frightened. Some unfortunate motorists will leave it too late to stop and we fear that there will be a fatality.
Seabrooke Rise residents request that the councils highways department give this issue their urgent attention. Let’s get some “Kill your speed” signs up”.
