Road Safety around Schools – All Saints C. E. Primary School

Closed 19 Dec 2022

Opened 29 Nov 2022

Overview

The Council’s overall strategic transport ambition is to increase the number of children walking or cycling to school to reduce congestion on roads, improve local air quality, and improve health outcomes. In order for this to be achieved, it is important that walking or cycling to school is a safe option for children and their families. To support this ambition, the Feasibility and Road Safety Team have been working to tackle key concerns which have been raised by schools and local Members.

To reduce the impact of inconsiderate parking and to highlight to passing vehicles there are children in the area, the following improvements have been identified surrounding All Saints Church of England Primary School:

  • Provision of three new school warning signs within the area to encourage vehicles to slow down at school times;
  • Provision of dropped kerbs, with tactile paving, on Lloyd Street to create an uncontrolled crossing point to accommodate pedestrian demand between the park and the footway towards Churchill Street. Access protection markings (H-Bar) would be provided to highlight the crossing and keep it clear of vehicles;
  • Provision of three middleton bollards to the north of the Lloyd Street school entrance to prevent vehicles driving over the build-out and contravening the banned left turn from All Saints’ Road onto Lloyd Street;
  • Provision of No Waiting at Any Time (double yellow lines) at the junctions of Lloyd Street / Bardsley Street, Lloyd Street / Samuel Street, Lloyd Street / Farmer Street and Lloyd Street / Colin Road to keep these junctions clear of parked vehicles, protecting intervisibility between pedestrians and motorists whilst also ensuring vehicles can negotiate the junctions safely;
  • Proposed No Waiting and No Loading restrictions (Monday to Friday 8:00am-5:00pm) on the turning head of Churchill Street to discourage parking outside the school; and
  • Re-painting of the existing “SLOW” markings on Lloyd Street to ensure its visibility to traffic.
