ROAD accidents may decrease thanks to safety improvements at a blackspot.
The work was carried out on Victoria Avenue and Queen's Park Drive in Crewe after a flurry of traffic accidents and near misses involving people crossing the road.
Last August Cheshire County Council and its road safety consultants, Peter Brett Associates, published a plan to tackle the problem.
Proposals included a pelican crossing, and as part of the overall upgrade, improvements were also made to the bus stop network.
Ward councillor Bob Jones believes the work will reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring in the future. He said: 'These road safety improvements are long overdue. They will improve safety for pedestrians and visitors to Queens Park which is attended by thousands of people each and every year.
'I also welcome the investment in the local bus network and I hope that pensioners will now be able to use their new free bus passes at a convenient location.'
