Pedestrian Safety – Deadmill Lane

On 3rd March 2016 there was a minor incident at the top of Deadmill Lane. Traffic turning into Deadmill Lane gave scant regard to parents and children walking to Swainswick School. The details have been forwarded to the authorities. This Council, over a number of years, has been corresponding with B&NES seeking improvements to the flow of traffic and indeed ensuring there is a ‘Safe Route to School’. This latest incident emphasises the need for some action to be taken.
