Construction work around Crudwell School 7th Aug 18

Construction work is programmed to commence on Tuesday 7th August and anticipated to take two weeks to complete. Temporary 3 way traffic signals will be in operation during the works.

Wiltshire Council in implementing its Local Transport Plan (LTP) for 2011-2026 is seeking to develop measures throughout the County, which seek to provide improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists and also improve road safety.

This scheme has been developed as part of a request from Crudwell Primary School through the ‘Taking Action on School Journeys’ initiative. This initiative has been developed to give schools the opportunity of providing improvements to school journey routes, for cyclists and pedestrians.

The scheme will see the construction of an informal crossing point and two short sections of footway within the existing verge at The Street, Crudwell, in the vicinity of the Potting Shed public house. A plan outlining the scheme is provided overleaf. The aim of the scheme is to provide a safer route from the car park to the school for parents and pupils of Crudwell Primary School.

An advisory, part time 20mph speed limit will also be introduced and will operate at school drop off and pick up times.

Construction work is programmed to commence on Tuesday 7th August and anticipated to take two weeks to complete. Temporary 3 way traffic signals will be in operation during the works.

Wiltshire Council would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and co-operation whilst the works are carried out.
