Stafford Council, our children need a safe route to school
There are hundreds of children and parents who make the twice daily (more for part-time nursery children) commute to Veritas Primary Academy and Weston Road Academy each day. Many, if not most of these people are on foot, with some on bicycles. Traffic is heavy on Beaconside, especially in a morning and pedestrians have to cross over at the trepidatious roundabout with no zebra, pelican or lolipop lady/man to aid them. A new footpath is needed so that pedestrians can cross over at the technology park pelican crossing and walk to school safely. Veritas Academy is a new school and is not yet full to capacity, the amount of pedestrians on the school commute is bound to increase, therefore we must act now to avert a tragedy and have safety measures put in place.
