A PETITION has been launched for a crossing on a busy Grays street.
The petition reads as follows:
"King Edward Drive is increasingly busy and has to be crossed by children arriving on foot from the Little Thurrock direction for Woodside Primary and Treetops schools.
It is so busy during school runs that children are mainly delivered to school by car for safety even from a short distance.
"A crossing would support children walking to school and deal with traffic problems and child obesity.
