Safety 'greatly enhanced' thanks to measures outside primary school

New measures have been implemented to improve road safety outside a primary school.

A metal barrier and white lines have been put into place outside Drury Primary School, near Buckley, to create a crossing for children.

Headteacher Mark Biltcliffe said they were delighted with the completion of the work.

He said: “The governors raised concerns about the dangers of children crossing near the school by a bend.

“After a site meeting between the headteacher, Streetscene, Cllr Dennis Hutchinson and Cllr Mike Peers, there was an agreement to construct a metal barrier near the pavement and to mark the concerns of the road with white lines.

“This has greatly enhanced safety and creates a more designated crossing point.”

Mr Biltcliffe added: “This has greatly enhanced safety and creates a more designated crossing point.

“This was an excellent
example of everyone coming together to find a quick, simple measure that would help protect children in what is a busy corner at the beginning and end of the school day.

“I also regularly remind parents not to park on pavements because it narrows the pavement for children walking, making it difficult to navigate a pushchair through and there is a danger of reversing onto an unsuspecting child.”
