A safe crossing to McAlister Park

Petition details

There is no safe crossing around the end of Farnham St where it meets McAlister Park in Mornington, Wellington. Dozens of walkers with prams, dogs, and little people criss-cross between the Farnham St playground and the sports fields park every week, not to mention weekend sport players. At an intersection with poor visibility and no safe place to cross, or even an island between lanes, it seems like a matter of time before something unfortunate happens.
