PLANS for a pedestrian crossing on a busy Henley road have moved a step closer.
Oxfordshire County Council is preparing designs for a zebra crossing in Greys Road, which could be installed near the Takhar shop.
The town council has set aside £38,000 to help pay for it and Sacred Heart School, where staff and parents have campaigned for several years for a crossing, has pledged another £1,500.
The council’s traffic advisory committee heard that the final cost would be known in about two weeks and then the plans would go out to consultation for six weeks.
Mayor-elect Martin Akehurst said he would prefer a toucan crossing because it would have traffic lights but the committee heard this was likely to double the cost. Meanwhile, an estimate will be produced for resurfacing a walkway between Greys Road and Greys Hill.
