School Crossing Patrol on Meneage Road out for Public Consultation.
In a previous blog I said Cornwall Council had agreed to place a school crossing patrol on Meneage Road, Helston. This is one step closer to reality with the formal public consultation now taking place.
The reason for this school crossing is because number of children attending Nansloe school has increased over recent years and a higher number of children are crossing Meneage Road. High traffic volumes mean that it is sometimes difficult to cross the carriageway. A patrol will be able to supervise children crossing the carriageway.
As part of the plan, there will be a series of patrol signs and flashing amber lights to warn of the school crossing patrol site. The lights will operate at the beginning and end of the school day.
The consultation documents can be found HERE. In many consultations, people only seem to comment when they have a concern or want to object. However, this time it is important to give a view of support too. Please email you views and quoting Ref 1639 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The consultation period starts today and runs till the 13th June. It is hoped that work at the site will be implemented in time for the new school term in September.
