Issue Summary

Request for warning signage near Forest Sandridge School


Latest Update

16/11/2017 15:31:49 close

16/11/2017 15:31:33 Whilst the crossing point is not obvious to motorists, the sightlines for pedestrians is reasonable. Traffic is light in nature and most drivers will be local to the area. There are staggered barriers placed on both sides of the crossing to manage pedestrians and cyclists. A sign could be placed for those approaching from the main road but siting a sign in the opposite direction will be very difficult as there is no verge. It was agreed to close this issue. CATG 16th October.

CATG Action / Recommendation

Half way down Snarlton Lane there is a crossing point across the lane linking the two new housing developments leading to Forest and Sandridge School. This is a very well used crossing at school times but its location is not obvious to road users. Some signage warning road users on approach from both directions would be beneficial and would aid pedestrian safety.
