More details from petition creator

This petition calls for safe crossings outside St Edmund Campion and Altwood Secondary Schools, both in Altwood Road, Maidenhead. As well as being needed during school pick-up and drop-off times, which on its own would be justification enough, St Edmund Campion Church, Parish Centre and Altwood Secondary school experience regular use outside school hours.

Until December 2015 there had been a crossing patrol person to help children and parents cross the road, but the council has been unable to fill the role and the commonly used crossing point is no longer safely patrolled.

School parents have noticed a worrying number of incidents of dangerous driving around the school which is putting at risk the lives of children and parents crossing the road. These events would have been prevented, and the risk reduced, had there been a crossing patrol present.

With ever-increasing traffic volumes and increased pupil numbers, our schools need a safe crossing point more than ever.

We appeal to the council not just to look for the most economically viable solution but to prioritise options that are statistically most likely to keep children safe.
