Scott Way - zebra crossing consultation

Many children cross Scott Way on their way to and from school, Kingsgate Park and other destinations. At the moment there's just a refuge island in the middle of the road near the footpath to Merlin Way.

Raysfield Junior School's travel plan group identified the need for a zebra crossing. Investigations have show that the improvment is necessary for improved safety, especially for children (43% of people crossing there are children) and people with mobility problems.

South Glos Council has now produced plans, and the formal consultation (click here) is open until 10 September. If the scheme is then approved it is hoped to do the work by the end of March.

This is a good example of how a community-based group can influence road safety. Well done Raysfield!
