A raft of road safety measures to relieve traffic congestion and parking problems on an estate surrounding a Swinnow school have been announced.
The measures will be introduced following a £4.9 million extension to double the size of Park Spring Primary School.
They follow concerns by residents and local councillors over road safety and parking in the area. The measures include:
- Introduce waiting restrictions on Harewood Way, Hough Top, Swinnow Lane and Wellstone Avenue.
- Introduce a 20mph speed limit zone within the area roughly contained by Hough Side Road/ Pudsey Road, Swinnow Lane and Swinnow Road
- Provide a humped Tiger Crossing near the new school entrance on Swinnow Lane.
A council report says:
“The improvements aim to ensure pedestrian safety in the area as well as reducing vehicle speeds and better regulating parking.”
The £82,000 plans will be advertised locally, and subject to no objections, implemented in the next couple of months.
