New Access Junction For Pershore High School
Article created on 16th November 2012
Worcestershire County Council, working in partnership with Pershore High School, school governors and Worcestershire County Councillor Liz Tucker, have created a new vehicle access to improve safety and promote sustainable modes of accessing the school.
Contractors for the project are Halcrow and Ringway.
The new access junction has been created to improve the safe movement of pedestrians, cyclists, buses and cars around the school site, especially at the start and end of the school day. The access allows buses, pedestrians and cyclists to be segregated from the cars accessing the site, reducing congestion and creating a safer environment for pupils, staff and visitors.
Worcestershire County Councillor and Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport John Smith said: "I am very pleased to see the new junction in use. It demonstrates the successes that strong partnerships can deliver when partners are working towards a shared goal, as the County Council and Pershore High School have done with the aim of improving safety."
Worcestershire County Councillor Liz Tucker added: "This new junction is a really positive development for Pershore High School and as a school governor I''m delighted that our pupils, parents and visitors can benefit from safer access to and around the school site."
