  • Cautious welcome for council report on Dee Road crossing | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    safety of pupils at English Martyrs Catholic Primary School and St Michael s Primary School Alok was joined by local parent Emma Simpson Holland who began the petition calling for a pedestrian crossing and Tilehurst Councillor Sandra Vickers in offering a cautious welcome but there continues to be concern that the Council will not deliver on its promises The report makes a reference to existing flashing warning signs outside the two schools which the Council promised to have turned on at a meeting Alok attended with representatives from both Dee Road schools more than a month ago on 28th January However to date the lights have not yet been turned on The report also casts doubt on whether a crossing will actually be installed with the report stating that Outside of the schools times there is no demand for crossings within the area of the school gates and that a pedestrian crossing may lead to a worsening of traffic conditions The report also discusses the impact that a pedestrian crossing would have on parking Alok Sharma said I cautiously welcome this report which appears to promise that a pedestrian crossing on Dee Road will be installed If this happens this will be a significant victory for parents who have fought long and hard for action to be taken Alok continued There is however serious concern that although the Council seems happy to want to take credit for this announcement about installing a crossing the Council s action so far has left much to be desired It has now been more than a month since the Council promised to have the flashing lights outside the schools working and still nothing has been done What we do not want are just more empty words from the council we want positive action and
