Lola Solari, who lives nearby, said: “I am delighted the crossing is finally in place and already getting plenty of use by people of all ages.”
North Somerset councillor for Backwell, Karen Barclay said: “It’s great to see the crossing finally in operation, I have had many calls from residents to say how pleased they are.”
