Traffic Calming on Briar Meads

We the undersigned petition the Council to We the undersigned petition the Council to Reduce the speed limit on Briar Meads/ Briar Walk. Install a zebra-crossing or a crossing guard on Briar Meads to make it safer for children and adults to cross the road. Create a separate cycle lane from Howdon Road to Hidcote Road along Briar Meads. And consider installing school bollards and pedestrian and bicycle only areas.

Currently this section of road is very busy from 2.45pm to 3.45pm on school days. It's shared by children on bicycles from Brocks Hill Primary School, Gartree High School and Beachamp College who often cycle 2 or 3 next to each other peddling fast downhill with no helmet on. As well as the young cyclists this is shared by double decker buses, cars, pedestrians and a lot of parked cars. It's good to encourage young people to cycle but the risk of a fatality is high and there have been minor incidents.
