Safety Measures Needed for Horseshoe Lane



Further to another accident involving a student on Horseshoe Lane the Elected Mayor and local Councillors are urging residents to support a petition that has just been launched calling upon Hertfordshire County Council to implement highway safety measures along this stretch of Horseshoe Lane, Garston, to reduce accidents and collisions before a serious accident occurs. 

 

This stretch of Horseshoe Lane is particularly busy at school opening and closing when children are being dropped off picked up due to the proximity of Francis Combe Academy, Garston Manor School and St.Catherine of Siena School. There’s also the added pressures and complexities here as its adjacent to the busy Woodside Leisure Centre. 

 

Last year Local County Councillor Tim Williams successfully made a bid to Hertfordshire County Council to have a school crossing patrol at this location, however despite the highway engineering works having been completed earlier this year recruiting a School Crossing person has not been successful. 

 


We the undersigned, call upon Hertfordshire County Council, as our Highways Authority,  to work with local schools, to implement highway safety measures along this stretch of Horseshoe Lane to reduce accidents and collisions before a more serious accident occurs.
