- Where: Glenfield Infant School and Beechwood Junior School area
- When: Initial perceptions survey July 2023
- What: Safer routes to school
- Why: To improve the local environment for residents, walking and cycling for local journeys.
Following the public consultation earlier in the year, residents in the area of Glenfield Infant School and Beechwood Junior School are invited to comment on proposals to improve pedestrian access on Mousehole Lane, just east of the junction with Glenfield Avenue, with a new pedestrian crossing. These measures are part of the Safer Routes to School scheme, funded by the government’s Active Travel Fund.
You will find a link to the Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) for this scheme on the web page
The consultation period for the TRO will be until 12 January 2024.
In July of this year, we asked for your views on road safety, in particular walking and cycling to both Glenfield Infant and Beechwood Junior School. We have now considered what measures could be introduced to address the concerns raised (see Previous Consultations opposite). Based on this response we are now working on a design for a signalised pedestrian crossing on Mousehole Lane, which will be shared in the coming weeks for consultation.
This project will create an improved environment for walking and cycling in this area for local trips as well as joining wider Cycle network. This may include traffic calming to reduce the number of vehicles and ensure lower vehicle speeds. Measures will be informed through local consultation
