Manor Park Primary School staff and parents whose children attend there, have long been concerned about problems with dangerous parking and speeding in the area. Cheylesmore Ward Councillors have been working closely with parents, the school and road safety teams to come up with improvements.

Councillor Richard Brown, one of the Ward Councillors, said: “20mph advisory reflective signs will be going up in Ulverscroft Rd and Brightwalton Rd in the next couple of months to help reduce vehicle speeds and our traffic safety team will be looking to see if any further measures can be introduced.

"To improve the parking situation we will be blacking out the markings for the disused bus stops so it is obvious people can park there and we have been outside the school at peak times to talk to those who are parking unsafely. Once we’ve investigated the possibilities of any other measures, we’ll be consulting further with the school and local residents.”

The 20mph signs are due to go up by early April with investigations for other potential road safety measures currently taking place.
