Petition to: carry out a full safety review of our children’s passage to school. We petition for the provision of safe pedestrian access to the school, preferably by a pelican crossing, or by a crossing attendant or other effective means. The safety review to be carried should cover the crossing points to St Lawrence Primary School at the double roundabout between Effingham Common Road and Lower Road including its junction with Church Street. We request that this matter is given a high priority in order to protect those crossing to the school and to prevent life changing or fatal injury to any of our children.

This petition is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to carry out a full safety review of our children’s passage to school. We petition for the provision of safe pedestrian access to the school, preferably by a pelican crossing, or by a crossing attendant or other effective means. The safety review to be carried should cover the crossing points to St Lawrence Primary School at the double roundabout between Effingham Common Road and Lower Road including its junction with Church Street. We request that this matter is given a high priority in order to protect those crossing to the school and to prevent life changing or fatal injury to any of our children. More details

More details from petition creator

We consider that it is currently unacceptably dangerous to cross Effingham Common Road and Lower Road to St Lawrence Primary School, especially at school opening and pick up times. Traffic is particularly heavy and driving patterns dangerous during these periods. There are currently only inadequate small traffic refuges next to the roundabouts where children cross to go to the school. Many vehicles approach the roundabout at excessive speeds particularly from Effingham Common Road making the Lower Road crossing particularly unsafe. Poor pedestrian sight lines make crossing these roads hazardous. Two recent incidents involving lorries colliding with the railings outside the school and a child being hit by a vehicle’s wing mirror are evidence of this, as is the recent fatality only 200 metres east along Lower Road. We are concerned that it is only a question of time before a serious injury or fatality occurs to one of our children outside the school.
