Nottinghamshire County Council puts together road safety measures near Suthers School at Fernwood
New safety measures are being proposed in a bid to address road safety concerns around Suthers School at Fernwood.
Nottinghamshire County Council has put together a package of measures to lower traffic speeds and advise motorists of the presence of children crossing on the approaches to the school.
These include the installation of a vehicle activated speed sign on the approach to the Tawny Owl roundabout over the A1 and additional 40 mph repeater speed signs.
Warning signs will also be placed in each direction near the crossing and on the approaches to Tawny Owl crossing point.
John Cottee, chairman of the council’s communities and place committee, said: “Road safety is a high priority and we’ve listened to concerns from the parish council, school headteacher and residents and hope that this combination of safety measures will be welcomed.
“Further work is also under way to review the layout of the current crossing facilities at the Tawny Owl roundabout to see what additional or modified measures could be put in place. When this review is complete, work will be scheduled as appropriate.”
