DROPPED kerb crossing points are to be installed in four Isle of Wight towns following requests from residents.
The dropped kerbs will make it easier for the elderly, wheelchair users and people with prams to cross the road.
Cllr Edward Giles, the Isle of Wight Council cabinet member responsible for highways, said: "Each dropped kerb is a relatively small scheme but we know from residents feedback that they can make a very real difference to a many people who use the roads and pavements."
The work, which is due to be completed by the end of March, is the latest phase of an on-going programme that has seen hundreds of dropped kerb crossings installed across the Island.
They will be installed at the following locations:
Ryde — Partlands Close, Marina Avenue, Appley Road, Adelaide Place, Ratcliffe Avenue, St Thomas’ Street, five locations in Marlborough Road and four locations at the junction of West Street and Arthur Street
Ventnor — Two locations in the High Street
Freshwater — Solent Gardens
Sandown — Two locations in Salisbury Way
