Petition: safety first! Lollipop crossings for Colman Road junction
The safety of our children must always be Norfolk County Council’s highest priority.
The Colman Road and South Park Avenue junction is close to five schools including a complex needs school and a pre-school. The junction is on one of Norwich’s high capacity arterial routes and is exposed to poor driver behaviour each day, leaving children and adults in constant danger. This junction should qualify for exceptional circumstances status and the new pedestrian crossings must retain a twice daily school crossing patrol.
The new layout and junction phasing means one patrol for each crossing will be necessary. This petition calls on Norfolk County Council Cabinet Member for Children’s Services,
Cllr John Fisher, to prioritise our children by confirming the provision of a second school crossing patrol at the Colman Road and South Park Avenue junction.
