RESIDENTS in Chell are being asked by Stoke-on-Trent City Council if they want a pelican crossing on its busiest road.
The authority has received a request for the move from a number of householders.
However, it now wants to see if there is a wider demand from the community before deciding on the merits of the scheme.
The call is for the crossing to be located on St Michael’s Road, Chell, near St Michael’s Church.
One resident in Hewitt Street said pensioners find difficulty crossing the road, especially to get to church services and the route is so busy that traffic grinds to a standstill during every evening rush-hour.
Householders say traffic has increased since the opening of Reginald Mitchell Way two years ago.
They have all received letters about the proposal from council highways officials.
