Weather permitting, the replacement of the zebra crossing on Schools Hill with a modern puffin crossing will begin on 4th February 2013, and should be completed by the end of February.
Although it’s taken longer than we’d hoped to complete the planning, we’re very glad to see this going in.
There were several accidents on the crossing last winter and this is the latest in a series of measures to make that section of Schools Hill safer. Other measures include flashing speed signs and rumble strips to slow traffic down.
I’ve also had a recent meeting with Mrs Marsh, the new headteacher at Lady Barn House School. Although there are no easy answers to improving the traffic problems around the school – especially in the afternoon – there are some ideas we’ll be working on over the next few months .
