  • The rhs beacon is not visible to drivers coming down the hill., making it difficult to see that there is a zebra crossing. Unlike the old-style pulsating globe light the ring of LEDs is very directional and needs to be aligned with the road.

  • One man, a ladder and a spanner is all it needs. 10 min job. Disappointed that still not done and lives remain at risk.

  • Rule 19 of the highway code defines a zebra crossing as having lights. If only one set of lights is visible to drivers is it still a crossing?
