A SUNDAY SUN team recently embarked on a cross country drive to determine how many pedestrian crossings are in need of repaintingt.

A number of crossings were almost invisible, some were in dire need of repainting, while those found primarily outside of schools, were in pristine condition.

PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS should be repainted three to four times a year.

That’s according to deputy chief technical officer of operations in the Ministry of Transport and Works, Philip Tudor.

However, a trip across various parishes revealed that there were a number of faded crossings.

“We usually repaint pedestrian crossings three to four times a year, but as you may notice sometimes some crossings require repainting more frequently than others as a result of the level of traffic which may pass in that particular area,” he stated.

In the east of the island, a pedestrian crossing located outside the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Groves, St Philip was completely faded, while over at the St John Post Office, the crossing fading.
