No signs or lights to warn of pedestrian crossing

(I appreciate this length of road to the new Gateway retail park may not have been adopted by OCC but can I please urge OCC to follow this up with the owners if that is the case. The problem is the new pedestrian crossing (zebra crossing) on the extension of Wildmere into the new retail park which has been marked on the edge of a "speed table". There are absolutely no signs or lights on the footways to warn drivers of the crossing and no refuge in the middle. Moreover it is very difficult to recognise that there is a pedn crossing there if the road is wet or the light is poor. Because this is a very busy entrance/exit for the retail park, drivers are often distracted and I have witnessed a number of near misses with pedestrians who clearly don't appreciate the issue for drivers and have a false sense of security! Coming out of the car park is the more hazardous because one senses the edge of the speed table but the crossing road markings are not very visible from this direction.
