Hartlepool Council has approved a new pedestrian crossing on one of the town's busiest roads.

Residents have long called for a new crossing on the A179 Easington Road dual carriageway amid safety concerns for pedestrians trying to reach a hospital, supermarket and bus stops.

The £90,000 crossing will be close to the Throston Grange Lane Holdforth Road roundabout.

Councillor Marjorie James said the concerns were being addressed.
