We want a footbridge so that school children can cross the NAR safely.

The Northern Approach Road in North Colchester, known locally as the NAR, is a very busy 40mph road.  The junction with Mill Road is a dangerous crossing, especially for children.

Heading into town, the NAR goes from 2 lanes to 1 lane. Drivers speed up at the junction to get into position. 

Myland Primary School is situated a few hundred yards away. Primary school children must cross the road twice a day. Child minders are often responsible for 6,7 or 8 children. Sometimes more.

This junction is simply not safe. A footbridge is needed to ensure our children can safely cross this road. If the journey to school becomes safer, more children will be encouraged to walk, scooter, or cycle to school, which has obvious additional health and environmental benefits.

Thank you.
