DNV Councillor Jim Hanson has sent a message to the Delbrook Community Association (DCA) telling us we can expect pedestrian cross lights to be installed at the Delbrook and Windsor crossing on the Delbrook Speedway within the next few weeks.
This is really good news because we understand they will be in place before school returns in September.
This has been a very dangerous crossing, particularly for kids. Watch the video below courtesy of Bev Parslow, a Delbrook area resident who has been working unrelentingly to have something done about speeding on Delbrook. In the video as the car approaches from the North, we see two cars blow through the crosswalk from the South. Only then does a third car stop and allow a group of children to cross the street.
This has been so common at this intersection that people have just been waiting for something serious to happen.
This is great news for the DCA and for Delbrook residents. More needs to be done. The Evergreen crossing is an issue, particularly for kids crossing to go to school. The complete absence of speed limit enforcement on the street is a continuing problem.
Work has already started at Windsor. In the picture below DNV workers trim hedges at the site to allow clear lines of sight for the awaited lights.
On a personal note, I almost got run down crossing there a few days ago. I shouted “crosswalk” at the driver and was rewarded with a one finger salute out the driver’s window as she drove south.
