ZEBRA CROSSING at Moorlands Primary School, Church end Lane, Tilehurst

This petition had 691 supporters

After 5 years of taking my children to school at Moorlands Primary School on Church end Lane in Tilehurst the road has become increasingly more dangerous. Church end Lane has become a popular through road for drivers with some driving very erratically and speeding well above the speed limit of 20mph.

This year alone there has been frequent damage caused to the parked vehicles belonging to the local residents and parents who are dropping and collecting there children to and from school. Plus the most concerning incident of a young child being knocked down.

Moorlands Primary is due for expansion in 2018 which will mean, that there will be more children and parents at risk by crossing this busy, dangerous road on a daily basis.

There is nothing in place near to the school for children and their parents to cross safely apart from the traffic lights at the very top of Church end Lane, which means that a vast amount of children and parents have to walk 300-400 yards past the school just cross safely.

I am starting this petition to approach Reading Borough Council to take action to put in a safe crossing for children, as Moorlands Primary is one of the only schools within the area without a zebra crossing or traffic lights opposite to there school.

I believe that with having this in place it will increase the safety of our children, and parents may feel a lot more comfortable allowing there children to walk to and from school independently. So therefore may also reduce parking shortages.

Thank you for taking the time to read my petition.
