A stretch of grid road in Milton Keynes has been re-opened to traffic after extenive works to improve its safety.
The V2 Tattenhoe Street between Grange Farm and Hazeley School now boasts a signalised pedestrian crossing, redway and safety fencing in the central reservation.
The road is often used by pupils heading to and from Hazeley Academy and the changes allow for safer crossing in the area, says Milton Keynes City Council.
But some people re already wondering why an underpass was not included to make the road even safer.
One former employee of the old Milton Keynes Development Corporation said: “The original plan for MK with grade separated routes for pedestrians/cyclists offered a very high degree of safety for all travellers whatever their mode of transport. This is evidence of further chipping away at what made MK unique and forward thinking - turning it into a city just like everywhere else.”
