Children will now be able to cross Greys Road more safely
Oxfordshire County Council have finally approved a zebra crossing to be installed on Greys Road. The zebra crossing has been marked up and will be installed just down from the ‘pram walk’ leading from Makins Recreation Ground across to Takhar shop and it is hoped that it will be ready early in the new year.
HRG County Councillor Stefan Gawrysiak proposed the new installation to OCC and Deputy Mayor, Councillor David Eggleton, who has campaigned for the crossing, helped with a survey to support the proposal. He said, “Sacred Heart and Trinity School have been campaigning with me for this for years”.
Cllr Gawrysiak is also campaigning to install other zebra crossings at the entrance to Swiss Farm and on Gravel Hill.
Henley Town Council have agreed to pay for the Greys Road zebra crossing from the Community Infrastructure Levy paid to them from the housing levy by developers.
