Councillors promised road improvements and traffic calming outside RomanWaySchool, including a safe crossing to the bus stop. But contractors put the crossing in the wrong place, closer to the busy Newbury Road junction. Residents have condemned the new crossing as useless and dangerous. Parents are also worried about increased traffic past the school despite county council claims there is no problem.
I agree with the residents and parents. The crossing is not good enough and must be improved. I am pushing highways officers to improve road safety on, and approaching, the new crossing.
