Safety signs for Cambridge punts
Posted by Jason Nicholls.
Larger safety signs are part of a raft of proposals to make people who enjoy travelling on punts in Cambridge safer.
According to Cambridge-news.co.uk, the navigation authority for the River Cam is concerned safety signs are being ignored by people as they are too small.
Philippa Noon, the river's manager, told the news provider that illustrated health and safety signage would be installed since many people using the punts do not speak English.
"Hopefully it will make things clearer for passengers," she told the news provider.
At a meeting, John Adams, chairman of the Conservators of the River Cam, said the proposals were needed to "improve safety".
Other recommendations include putting a minimum age of 17 for skippers, a minimum age of 16 for those using punts, alongside the phasing in of first aid training.
Discussion of the proposals will run until the end of November, with a final decision due to be made in January.
