Pupil calls for safety measures outside Brighton school
12:20pm Sunday 21st July 2013 in News
A pupil presented a petition calling for road safety measures outside her school.
Sian Oghan, 8, asked Brighton and Hove City Council to extend the zig-zag lines outside St Joseph’s RC primary school in Davey Drive, Brighton.
More than 100 signed the petition, which said it would lead to a safer place for pedestrians to cross the road as it would have a better view of oncoming traffic. It was the third petition submitted by parents and teachers about the road since 2009.
In response, Ian Davey, left, the council’s transport spokesman, said this could not be done easily, as Government regulations meant the lines had to be extended an equal distance on both sides.
With relocating a nearby disabled bay and submitting a new traffic order, Coun Davey said the council could not justify the cost.
