Nansloe School will get a school crossing patrol on Meneage Road
Several months ago, I requested to Cornwall Council to see if Meneage Road would qualify for a School Crossing Patrol (SCP). This is due a large number of children attending Nansloe Academy from other parts of Helston.
This road is busy, and therefore, parents choose to drive their children to school rather than walk. So a solution needed to be found to allow children to cross safety and reduce traffic in and around the school.
After various site monitoring visits to see how many people with children cross Meneage Road on the way to and from the school, I am very pleased to say, a SCP will be put in place on this road.
In simple terms, to qualify for a SCP, there has to be a certain number of children crossing (with or without their parent) at the peak school times.
Before the site is operational a small amount of engineering works will need to be undertaken, and someone will need to be recruited to the position.
I am very pleased there will be a crossing here. It is something I and the school have wanted for some time. Thank you Cornwall Council for finding the money for this.
It does not stop there either. As I am talking to Cornwall Council Highways to look at a more permanent solution of a fixed crossing. This will all depend on the type of crossing allowed on this road, and the funding for it.
