RESIDENTS in Markham are calling on the council to get rid of a mini roundabout following a fatal incident last year.
A petition to remove the mini roundabout at the junction of Abernant Road and Pant-y-Cefn Road was raised by Argoed Community Council and has 380 signatures.
Argoed councillor Walter Williams presented the petition at a full Caerphilly County Borough Council meeting on Wednesday March 15.
He said: “The residents and community council call on CCBC to provide a safe pedestrian crossing and barrier, remove the mini roundabout, and return it to a junction controlled by a stop sign and double white lines.”
He added: “I hope we don’t have to have another fatality before something is done.”
On December 9 2022, pedestrian Sandra Chamberlain, 67, was hit by a car at the mini roundabout. She later died in hospital from her injuries.
Another petition for a different mini roundabout in Markham was raised in December 2022.
