West Leeds: School roads boost welcomed



Have your say

plans to increase road safety around Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School have been welcomed by councillors.

The proposals, costing £46,000, will see a 20mph zone introduced on roads surrounding the school, ‘no waiting’ restrictions on Primrose Hill and Richardshaw Lane.

No stopping restrictions on the primary school’s ‘keep clear’ markings will also be implemented.

Councillor Andrew Carter (Cons, Calverley and Farsley) said: “It is important that young children and their families can travel to and from school in a safe environment.

“All in all this package of measures will benefit the school and make local roads considerably safer.”
