I AGREE with the points raised by Terry Hudson (Your Views, November 19). The railings must be installed at the junction North Lane and St Dunstan’s, Canterbury. As a regular user of this junction far too many pedestrians prefer to cross the road at the junction rather than using the pedestrian crossing 15 yards down North Lane. These jaywalkers are a hazard to drivers and themselves, nipping in and out of the traffic with no concern for the consequences. Railings will stop the appalling behaviour. The committee members from various wards with no interest in these applications all voted for them to be approved against those resident’s wishes. Shabby behaviour at the least and if this is reflected throughout the council’s dealings then woe betide the electorate!
