Good news for Theale Primary School parents for the New Year

The project to narrow Church Street at the zebra crossing outside the primary is to go ahead at last. The scheduled date for the work to start is the week beginning 18th February 2013. This project is in response to a request by Theale Parish Council to West Berkshire Council and to the petitions that parents and myself raised.

The narrowing will:
  • make the crossing more obvious to drivers
  • help slow traffic
  • reduce the distance for children and parents to cross
  • give more space on the pavement
The work will almost double the width of the pavement on the school side of the road. This will also give more space for children and parents waiting to cross the road.
