Make the High Street a safer place to cross for children travelling to and from Insch school and nursery: options could include:
-- introducing a 20mph speed limit
-- a zebra crossing
-- a pedestrian crossing 'green man'
-- a lollipop man/lady for before and after school
Why is this important?
Currently, the junction where Commerce Street and Denwell Road meet High Street is extremely hazardous for children travelling to school. Cars are parked up along either side of High Street leaving poor visibility for pedestrians. Cars travel at speed round the corner from Denwell Drive and Commerce Street into High Street making it very hazardous for children walking to and from school. Although the council has been approached nothing has been put in place to mitigate the risk to school children from this dangerous crossing. It seems only a matter of time before an accident happens.
