YATE - Brimsham Green School Footway, Broad Lane


Funding has been made available to install a footway on the verge of the lay-by at the front of Brimsham Green School (BGS). Concerns have been raised by parents of Primary School Children attending North Road Primary School and walking from the Brimsham Park area about the difficulty they have in walking across the frontage of BGS due to lack of footway.

Purpose of the scheme

Implement new footway that will connect the two existing footways to the east and west of BGS. This is to allow pedestrians the ability to walk across the school frontage. The footway will also give pedestrians a safe crossing points where they can get to other footways, for example to get to the public footway at the end of Broad Lane. Motorists that park in the lay-by will also benefit from the proposed footway.

Proposed scheme

The proposed scheme consists of a 2m wide footway along the entire length of the back of the lay-by. To allow the 2m wide footway, the lay-by will have to be narrowed slightly but it will allow school parking and sufficient space for the same number of vehicles Dropped crossings across the entrance and exit to the school will be also installed as part of the works, including a small build-out at the exit to the school and some alteration to the kerb line.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
