Road Safety around Schools – St Simons Catholic Primary School

Closes 6 Dec 2021

Opened 16 Nov 2021


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 remind drivers of the 20mph speed limit in the area and to provide improved crossing facilities for pupils and their parents/carers, the following improvements have been identified surrounding St Simon’s Catholic Primary School:

  • Installation of additional dropped kerbs and tactile paving on Bosden Fold Road to aid pedestrians / children to cross and gain access to the primary school; and
  • Relining of the existing 20mph roundel and ‘SLOW’ road marking on Bosden Fold Road to remind drivers of the speed limit.
