Road Safety around Schools – Cheadle Heath Primary School

Closes 6 Dec 2021

Opened 16 Nov 2021

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 Traffic Services 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 Cheadle Heath Primary School:

  • A review and upgrade of the school warning signs on Edgeley Road;
  • Provision of six pencil bollards on the southern side of Edgeley Road and one on the northern side of Edgeley Road to emphasise the school entrance and highlight to drivers that pupils are likely to be using the signalised pedestrian crossing to travel to/from school;
  • Provision of ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ restrictions (double yellow lines) at the junction of Huntley Road / Edgeley Road in order to keep the junction clear of parked vehicles, protecting intervisibility between pedestrians and motorists whilst also ensuring vehicles can negotiate the junction safely;
  • Provision of ‘No Loading’ blips on the kerbs along Edgeley Road to reinforce the existing ‘No Loading’ restrictions (7:30-9:30am and 4-6:30pm); and
  • Provision of ‘No Loading’ restrictions (8:30-9:30am and 2:30-4pm Monday to Friday) on Heathside Road to provide additional support to the existing ‘No Waiting’ restrictions (8am-6pm Monday to Friday) at school drop-off and pick-up times.
