Safe crossing on Royal Lane

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to build a crossing on Royal Lane, outside Meadow High School, to facilitate the safe crossing of pupils with Special Educational Needs

For the last three years there has been a big drive to have more Meadow High School pupils travelling independently to school. This has been very successful with many of our older pupils (and some of our younger pupils) travelling to school on foot or via public transport.

Alongside this, many families are not receiving home to school transport, necessitating them transporting their child to school, either on foot or by car. Crossing the busy Royal Lane with a very complex child, who has learning difficulties, is extremely high risk. In addition, most Meadow pupils also have complex difficulties e.g Autism and many have physical difficulties e.g poor muscle tone, Dyspraxia. This makes crossing a busy road more difficult, confusing and dangerous.

We feel that pupils and families are at high risk crossing on such a busy road which services Hillingdon Hospital and has an ambulance station opposite.

The provision of a crossing would also facilitate road safety for the local community including our neighbours in the Mosque, Hillingdon Hospital patients, pupils attending other local schools, two play groups, the community centre and local residents.

We hope you will support this petition.

On reaching 20 signatures it will be formally considered by the Council and relevant Cabinet Member. Local ward Councillors will also be made aware of the petition. The Council's Democratic Services Team will keep the lead petitioner updated on progress.

This ePetition ran from 13/06/2017 to 05/09/2017 and has now finished.
