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.
