Concerned parents have asked for more traffic and road improvements to be introduced near a primary school in Bradford to improve safety in the area.
This would be in addition to the introduction of security bollards
, speed bumps and road narrowing that have already come into place.
Developments like steel fencing
or steel gates
would go a long way to help prevent drivers from parking their cars on a well-used pavement in Shetcliffe Lane, which often leaves parents having to redirect their pushchairs on a busy road.
Speaking to the Telegraph and Argus, Zoe Shears, a parent who walks her child to the school, said: “Parking on there is ridiculous and cars have to take turns giving way. Residents living there have their cars parked on the pavement – on occasions where the lollipop lady stands. She takes her life in her hands to help children cross the road. She does a brilliant job."
The lollipop lady is even forced to go around knocking on people's doors to ask them to remove their ill-placed cars, reported the paper.
Last year a £10,000 development in Gloucester to improve safety in a children's play area highlighted the effectiveness of the introduction of security bollards
