A PETITION has been launched for a pedestrian crossing to be installed on a busy road on the outskirts of Barnsley town centre.

Hundreds of residents have already signed a petition to Barnsley Council launched earlier this week, which is calling for a pedestrian crossing on Racecommon Road.

The petition was launched by Liam Hardcastle and has so far been signed by more than 450 people, inlcuding local author Milly Johnson.
