Road accident prompts petition & calls for Cleethorpes school to get radar speed signs

7877007-largeSPEED CONCERNS: Jill Goodwin, head teacher of Thrunscoe Primary And Nursery Academy, Cleethorpes, pictured on Trinity Road, where a pupil was knocked down by a car on his way to school.

CONCERNED teachers and parents are campaigning for radar speed signs to be installed outside a primary school, after a pupil was hit by a car earlier this year.

A petition is being put together by parents at Thrunscoe Primary And Nursery Academy in Trinity Road, Cleethorpes, which will be handed in a North East Lincolnshire Council’s next environment and housing meeting.

The petition calls for the installation of two radar speed signs on Trinity Road.

Headteacher Jill Goodwin said both she and members of staff had also signed the petition.

The move follows a collision in January, which saw a nine-year-old boy from the school suffer a broken collar bone,

Mrs Goodwin said: “That accident was the trigger for this petition. I have been concerned by the sheer volume of the traffic on the roads around the school. The road itself is hilly and cars tend to travel at high speeds.

“There is a recommended speed of 20mph near the school but not many vehicles actually go that speed.”

The headteacher also said that road safety officers have visited the school in recent months to explain to the pupils how to cross the road safely.

However, she has said she would like to see more done to improve the safety of the roads.

She said: “I have offered to pay towards having one of the radar speed cameras installed if the council are able to fund the other.

“The safety of the road has been an ongoing issue for some time now.

“We get a lot of cars parking on the double yellow lines which creates blind spots.

“There have been two near misses with cars near the Spar shop and the zebra crossing on Trinity Road.

“At certain times of the day there is a high density of traffic, including heavy goods vehicles, which can make the road dangerous.”

As reported, Mrs Goodwin first applied to NELC for new interactive signs to be installed near the school in the immediate aftermath of the accident.

Speaking at the time, she said: “Not that long ago there was an adult knocked down on the zebra crossing in Trinity Road.

“But my paramount concern is the safety of the schoolchildren.”

The pupil involved in the incident was taken to the Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital in Grimsby where he was treated for his injuries.”

It is understood NELC will consider the petition once it has been received at the next environment and housing meeting.
