I have started an e-petition proposing the B4447 to be slowed and a crossing put in where Cannondown Road meets Maidenhead Road. For residents of Southwood Gardens and children in Cookham who attend Furze Platt Secondary School, crossing this road can be a scary and dangerous experience. If the road was slowed to 30 mph (as it has been the other side of the railway bridge) and a crossing or island put in the road, this would make this road much safer to cross.
If you agree with me, please add your name to my petition on http://petitions.rbwm.gov.uk/cookhamcrossing/.

Signed it. The part about the 30mph approach to the bridge from Maidenhead  is in error. The limit is already 30MPH.

Only when you get close to the bridge, there is a long stretch from the crossroads with Long Lane that is 40 mph.

Yesterday they started to change the speed limits on the roads around us (thanks to repeated contact by one of my neighbors with a councillor). Long Lane has been changed to 30mph and part of Cannondown Road has changed to 30mph - although it's all a bit confusing along there at the moment. Maybe it's a work in progress. Anyway, let's hope this is the start of a review of the roads in this area and keep the pressure up for a crossing by getting as many people as possible to sign up!
