Keep calm, Telford!

More traffic-calming schemes will be coming to Telford’s schools this summer after parents raised concerns about safety outside schools.

The new schemes, funded through Telford & Wrekin Council’s Pride in Our Community programme, will see more than 30 schemes carried out by March next year.

Although the traffic calming measures will vary from school to school, they will include new and freshened-up road lining, speed signing and flashing lights designed to warn motorists that they are entering a school zone.

Councillor Richard Overton, Telford & Wrekin Council cabinet member for neighbourhood services, explains, “Our road safety and highways officers work closely with schools and local councils to understand the issues around each school to determine what may help to improve safety and offer general advice.

We’ll also soon be taking over new parking enforcement powers from the police which will help us to target problem parking around schools more effectively.”
