GREENHOLM ROAD SCHOOL ROAD SAFETY MEASURES
While meeting some Greenholm Road school parents and school Crossing attendant recently I was shocked to see some parents driving and parking on the verve opposite the school entrance completely disregarding the safety of the children crossing the road with the Crossing attendant.
I have since insisted the District Transportation Engineer see the situation for himself and he has now agreed to have some bollards installed on this verge to protect the Crossing attendant and the children he crosses over the road.
It is very sad that we the rate payer have to pay the cost of the actions of a few parents who feel the need to park in such a dangerous way.
Double yellow lines to be located near local road junctions are also being considered.
