Eddie White started this petition to Renfrewshire Council

Renfrewshire Council have decided to remove both Crossing Patrol staff who currently provide supervised and safe routes to Howwood Primary school across Beith Road/Main Street and Bowfield Road.

This decision was taken without prior consultation or engagement with the school or parent council and will come into effect from Monday 7th September, effectively giving parents one school day's notice.

The junction at Beith Road / Main Street has been the location of traffic accidents in the past and has no traffic calming or assisted crossing measures.

This decision has raised safety concerns for parent's who are already worried about the ongoing Covid-19 situation and schooling. The concerns regarding the danger of unsupervised or supported crossing of main traffic routes are obvious but there is also the impact that this will have on children's independence and encouraging walking to school.

Please sign to support safe routes to school.
