Extra signs to be installed at Gloucester site

Extra warning signs are to be installed at a space near Gloucester city centre in an effort to improve health and safety.

The move was made after a report by Gloucestershire County Council last year found that shoppers were at risk of being hit by vehicles in the area, with the new signs set to notify pedestrians that they are entering a "shared space", according to the Citizen.

Flashing signs will also be fitted, indicating to drivers when they exceed the area's speed limit.

Councillor Paul James, leader of Gloucester City Council, told the news provider: "There have been ongoing safety concerns at the site, I've made representations and I'm sure other people have too."

Elsewhere, the South West Public Health Observatory has launched the Injury Profiles, which enable comparisons to be made between the rates of people killed and taken to hospital because of accidents.

This information can also be shared from one English local authority to another, in a bid to lower the number of injuries in the UK.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801335856-ADNFCR
