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.

The council report can be read in full here.
