Ford Estate councillor Martin Haswell and local parents are demanding Sunderland Council introduces a lollipop crossing patrol at busy junction near Highfield Academy after traffic volumes surge because of Northern Spire bridge.
Liberal Democrat councillor for Pallion and Ford Martin Haswell is calling on Sunderland Council to introduce lollipop crossing patrol outside Highfield Academy in Ford Estate.
"Labour has taken areas like Hendon, Grangetown and the east end for granted, the Lib Dems are the only party that will work hard, turning up outside election times and listening to residents.
"I expect this will be the first of many gains, one of many in Sunderland and I expect to see similar scenes in Sheffield, Hull and Liverpool.
"It just shows that while Labour might want to blame national figures, this was also happening under Jeremy Corbyn, it's happening again under Keir Starmer and this is a party on a downward spiral while the Liberal Democrats are up across the country."
