There have been a number of incidents involving cars failing to stop at the zebra crossing, outside St Urban's Primary & Cardinal Heenan High schools, when pedestrians are waiting or even crossing, results in some near misses. Currently the speed limit is 30 mph. LCC plans to make all roads outside all schools into 20mph zones, those with a higher risk are being prioritised. The lower speed limit make drivers more aware of the crossings and pedestrians.
We would also like to see road safety measures at the roundabout at the top of Church Lane and beyond.
Turning left onto Parkside Road is a blind corner and straight on we have the issue of speeding all the way down to the bottom of Church Lane.There is currently no safe place to cross.The council have stated that there must be casualties before action can be taken. We do not want to wait for one of our children to be injured or worse before the council takes action.
In short, we want;
·20 mph speed limit out side St Urban's School/Cardinal Heenan High School
·Pelican crossing /Lollipop person at the zebra crossing
·Speed restrictions further down Tongue Lane at the roundabout and beyond, down Church Lane (bumps/speed warning signal/speed cameras)
