Safer Leeds Road

Following several near accidents involving children attempting to cross Leeds Road on the way to and from school this road safety campaign aims to: 1. Create a safer route to school for children attending Oatlands School, St Aidans and St John Fisher, and 2. Reduce the speed of traffic travelling between the Leeds Road/Hookstone Road junction and Almsford Bank (traffic leaving Harrogate travelling towards Leeds). The aim is to secure further green man style crossings at the A61 Leeds Road/Leadhall Lane/Hookstone Road junction and improved illuminated signage to reduce the speed of traffic travelling between this junction and Almsford Bank. We are working with Harrogate police, Councillor Fred Willis, council member for Pannal ward and Jill Cooper of Oatlands Junior School. Please add your support below


The Safer Leeds Road group is being organised by a number of local residents with children at the three schools mentioned above.
