Councillor David Baker – Traffic speeds down Rodney Hill have been a concern for a long time.  Parents and teachers are very worried particularly about the safety of children crossing the road near the school.    In the past we local ward Councillors have  supported the school in their request for traffic calming measures and for funding of a school crossing warden, unfortunately all attempts were unsuccessful.  Our recent request for a Traffic Speed Indicator ( Smiley Sid ) was again turned down by the Council due to lack of available funding.  As all local Councillors have an annual ward pot for small community projects we decided traffic calming was important and we should use some of our budget to provide a Smiley Sid.
James Connolly the Loxley Primary Headmaster – I (and the school community) have been very concerned about children’s safety since the removal of our crossing patrol service last year and this is a positive step.
