Why waste our money on this?

In response to your article on the campaign for a pedestrian crossing on the A17 at Holbeach (Lincolnshire Free Press, December 1), could someone tell me why this woman and her children are unable to walk along Cherry Tree Lane to the underpass?

It’s in complete safety and costs absolutely nothing.

Obviously, the woman and her two children would require more time – approximately one hour per day – to complete the extra distance.

Could someone also explain why anyone would wish to waste thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money unnecessarily on a scheme that will increase the risk of accidents to the hundreds of vehicles on the A17 for an unknown number of pedestrians, when an underpass already exists?
