Having this evening taken my life into my hands using the temporary pedestrian lights to walk through the Bell Street/Blosswood Lane railway bridge, I think everyone should be made aware of the shockingly short time allowed to accomplish this. I’m at least relatively fit and healthy, and was nowhere near the safety of the pavement before traffic started to move ominously towards me.
I’m genuinely worried that this is a serious accident waiting to happen.
I am now going to try to contact Southern Water, whom I believe to be responsible for these works, to express my concerns and ask for a safer solution to be put in place.
Please take care! Les Jordan
