Safer School Crossing - Ferrybridge

Pontefract Road, Ferrybridge is particularly bad for parked vehicles, speeding, and other traffic issues.

The speed reduction measures in place are currently insufficient to deal with the ongoing problems.

Parents and children also struggle to cross what is a busy road and bus route to access Willow Green Academy on Hampden Close, just off Pontefract Road.

In recent months parents and children have experience a number of near miss incidents which could have proved fatal.

We would like to see a review of the current measures and Wakefield Council to look at the installation of a pedestrian crossing on Pontefract Road, Ferrybridge, and further speed reduction measures.

Add your name to our petition calling on Wakefield Council to introduce a safe crossing/speed reduction measures near Willow Green Academy.
