A35 Morcombelake Pedestrian Crossing

To increase connectivity within Morcombelake Highways England will be installing a pedestrian crossing. Enabling works have now been completed and work will shortly begin on the pedestrian crossing itself. The crossing will be located on the A35 at the western end of the village close to Ship Knapp junction (between the eastbound and westbound bus stops).

This site was chosen as the best spot for safety, visibility and connectivity. We will also install high friction surfacing, warning signs and lighting to ensure maximum visibility of the crossing.
