I would like to see some safeguards put in place for pedestrians at this A16 crossing place.
With the expansion of housing between Wyberton and the A16. More pedestrians and cyclists are crossing the A16 at the staggered junction, A16/Tytton Lane east. Pedestrians and cyclists from the new Quadrant residential area, cross the A16 to access the footpath on the right of the A16 heading into Boston town. This is something I do twice daily, going to and from work. I see others doing the same.
The national speed limit applies to this section of road. Compared to similar roads in the area, this should be reduced to 40mph. Additionally, the two pedestrian crossing areas should be made more visible, with signage to warn drivers of pedestrians crossing.
It is quite scary being on this small refuge in the centre of the A16, with traffic travelling 60+ mph either side of you. If, like others negotiating the crossing with young children, even more so.
Thank you for your report. We will investigate and make an update to this report within 14 days.

Thank you for sending in your request. You’ll need a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for what you have requested. To get one you need to contact your Parish/Town council. If the Parish/Town council support your request, they can then contact their County Councillor who will get the TRO actioned. Thank you for reporting this matter.
