Thank you to the many parents, teachers and local residents who have spoken with me about the need for a pedestrian crossing at Flushdyke Junior and Infant School. The levels of dangerous parking and heavy traffic are currently unacceptable, and I urge you to join my campaign and call on Wakefield Council to guarantee funding for this essential safety scheme. I have consulted local businesses and everyone who responded was supportive of installing a crossing. It is time to get this crucial crossing in place.
We the undersigned call upon Wakefield Council to guarantee funding for the installation of a pedestrian crossing for Flushdyke Junior and Infant School within the forthcoming council budget for 2016/7. We are concerned about dangerous parking and heavy traffic making it difficult for families to get to and from school safely. We appreciate the severe financial constraints the Council faces, but the safety of our children must always come first.
