WALKER PRIMARY SCHOOL 20MPH SPEED LIMIT
It has been a long enough wait, but the result for Walker School is a great achievement. Now both pupils and parents can cross the road without the fear of 40mph speeding vehicles, and safety will be increased despite the lollipop lady sadly leaving Walker School soon.
Walker Primary School is one of the very few schools in the Borough not in a 20 mph zone and we are keen to rectify the situation with an effective scheme that is nevertheless sympathetic to its location in the conservation area.
Our proposals are shown on the attached plan and comprise the following key elements:
- Introducing a 20mph speed limit immediately outside and on the approaches to the school, including associated zone entry/exit signs.
- Constructing four asphalt sinusoidal road humps to help make the scheme self-enforcing.
- Rationalising the existing signs, removing unnecessary signs and reducing the size of others where possible.
- Replacing the existing anti-skid surfacing on the approaches to the crossing and refreshing the road markings.
