Keep our children safe

This petition had 94 supporters

Children who go to Ferryhill Primary school in Aberdeen would like to cycle to and from school safely. Currently they have to cycle on roads with cars and trucks. Please build dedicated cycle paths that are not shared with motor vehicles or pedestrians. 

We would like Aberdeen City Council to build a dedicated cycle path on Bon Accord St, a very busy road with lots of fast-moving traffic, including trucks. We would also like Whinhill Rd, Fonthill Rd, Springbank Terrace, Willowbank Rd, and Great Southern Rd to have separated cycle paths.

Children who cycle to school receive health and well-being benefits as a result of the physical activity. Aberdeen city also benefits through reduced pollution and traffic congestion around schools. Spending on cycling infrastructure returns more to the community than it costs to build.
