Crash barriers to protect school children on busy East Yorkshire road

Crash barriers to protect school children on busy East Yorkshire road
Crash barriers will be installed on a busy road in East Riding to protect children who use it to go to school, it has been reported.

The work on a stretch of the A63 at Welton is scheduled to begin on February 14th and will be funded by a £140,000 grant from the Highways Agency, the Yorkshire Post reports.

Close to 2,000 pupils attend South Hunsley - the second biggest school in the county.

The crash barriers come after a long campaign by councillors Julie Abraham and Helen Gilmour, who have worked to improve pedestrian safety in the area.

"This is absolutely excellent news, something that we have worked hard to get for many years, and something that we thought at times we could not achieve," councillor Abraham told the newspaper.

Recently, plans to remove a pedestrian guardrail in Dover were criticised, with one councillor saying lives could be at risk if the barriers were removed.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800363569-ADNFCR
