Councillors urge for speed limit to be lowered at Cheltenham school

Councillors are calling for a lower speed limit to be enforced at a school in Cheltenham in order to improve the safety of children.

Representatives from Warden Hill parish council have backed plans to stop illegal parking at Leckhampton Primary and some members believe a 20mph speed limit as well as associated warning signs would also be a benefit, reports the Gloucestershire Echo.

"The 20mph zone very much makes sense. It's very difficult to do 20mph on the road at peak school times, but nevertheless that should be the limit for that area," councillor Adrian Mears told the news provider.

Local residents have expressed concerns for years regarding the area around the school gates, which they believe is overly congested due to parents dropping off their children.

Motorists should drive particularly carefully when travelling to schools in order to look out for children, who are liable to cross the road at any point and potentially put their lives in danger.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801381876-ADNFCR
