Colchester residents call for road safety measures

Road safety campaigners in Colchester have urged for their local highways panel to introduce safety measures to schools in the area.

A total of £1 million will be spent on highways projects in the area, with the initial seven schemes equating to a cost of £200,000 and leading to new signage and road resurfacing work, reports the Daily Gazette.

Now, campaigners want the money to be spent on schools, with Dave Harris, borough councillor for Berechurch ward, fronting the Make School Road Safer project.

"We have to have an engineers’ report and backing, and the estimated price," Mr Harris noted.

He went on to specify that there is a "wish list" of measures, ranging from extra railings to a new footpath that could cost a maximum of £70,000.

Schools can be particularly dangerous driving spots, as the number of children present in the areas mean that motorists have to remain focussed and look out for any kids on the road.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801403905-ADNFCR
