Child Road Saftey Measures Poolemead Road

Gerry & Tim outside Twerton infants
Earlier this year we moved proposals for improved road safety outside of Twerton infants school.

We are now able to tell you that it is proposed to remove the existing ‘school’ road signing and replace with new ‘children walking to school’ and ‘School’ signs on yellow backing board (so that the signs stand out to motorists). Alongside the signs on the road ‘SLOW’ road markings will be installed.

In addition to this there will be ‘20’ speed roundel installed in Poolemead Road as part of the pilot 20 mph speed limit area when this is implemented early next year.

We are pressing for these works to be carried out as soon as possible.

We are also talking to highways about what other improvements can be made to secure a safer crossing point.
