Councillors Support Road Safety Measures

Councillors Act On Feed Back From Drop In Meetings

Minster and Woodmansey ward councillors are fully supportive of proposed measures to improve safety outside Primary School in .

A consultation process will shortly be undertaken and could potentially see an extension to ’s CPZ and parking restrictions, measures which the councillors say can’t come soon enough.

Cllr , who is also a governor at the school, has previously asked for a crossing to be placed on Woodmansey Mile to allow children and parents to cross in safety.

She said,

‘At times the road is hazardous to say the least. Cars are parking at both sides, which in itself is extremely dangerous. We fully support any safety measures that we can get before a serious accident happens.’

Fellow ward members Cllr and Cllr , also visited the site and saw the problems that were occurring due to parked cars and speeding .

Cllr Elvidge said,

“I am shocked at the heavy volume of that uses the road and the affect the parked cars have on visibility for pedestrians. Also, with the future development of the area something needs to be done sooner rather than later.”
