No go for crossing project

A REQUEST for a new pedestrian crossing in a Pegswood street has not been successful.

The county council was asked by Pegswood Parish Council whether it would consider putting in such a facility on Morpeth Avenue following a letter from a resident living in the area.

But one of its officers told the parish authority that it will not be carrying out a detailed study of the street because the request would be very unlikely to meet the funding criteria.

The project would have cost a total of approximately £45,000.
