Road safety problems near Kirkby on Bain school

Back to the bad old days?

The continuing problem of dangerous and inconsiderate parking near Kirkby on Bain Primary School during term time has been discussed at recent Parish Council meetings. Residents have noticed an increase in the danger to children, traffic congestion and obstruction of private drives, caused by a minority of inconsiderate drivers delivering and collecting children attending the school, despite white-line advisory road markings.

As a first move to improve the situation, Lincolnshire County Councillor Patricia Bradwell has recently enabled the removal of the kissing gate at the Main Street end of the Secret Path to allow improved access to and from the school (and the nearby nursery,) by pedestrians with pushchairs. This suggestion was made last year by Parish Councillors who remember the park-and-walk system which was partially successful in reducing the parking problems a few years ago, until the kissing gate was installed. This scheme depended on an informal agreement between the landlord of the Ebrington Arms pub, who offered free off-road parking at the pub, and Simon Morley, the school head teacher at the time.

Councillor Bradwell has also requested the LCC Schools Road Safety Officer to come out to look at the parking situation at going to and from school times.          Continue reading
