There will be two information sessions to discuss the safety on the roads around our school and St Edward's on 2nd and 9th November.
We have been asking for something like this for over a decade. All are invited to attend either of the public meetings below.
We consider the level of traffic outside our school at the beginning and the end of each school day to constitute a danger to our community.
Our request is that the road be closed for about an hour in the morning and again in the afternoon during term time, for all but residents, emergency services and people with approved reasons for exemption, such as those with disabilities or residents’ carers. I envisage closure between, perhaps, 8.30 and 9.30 a.m. and again from 2.45 to 3.45 p.m.
I would like Oldham Council then to oversee the impact on surrounding roads to manage any consequential negative impact there.
Please attend if you would like to express your own perspective. The decision will ultimately not be ours, so it is important your views, either for or against, are properly considered by the due authorities.
