School backed over A46 road concern campaign

Evesham Editorial 17th Feb, 2022   0

PERSHORE’s MP Harriett Baldwin has offered her support to a county primary school which is campaigning to improve road safety along a busy main road.

Pupils at Sedgeberrow First School wrote to the MP sharing their concerns about speeding cars along the busy A46 and they coined the phrase ‘don’t be naughty, stick to 40’ to persuade drivers to slow down.

The road has seen a series of serious accidents in recent months and late last year, Mrs Baldwin wrote to National Highways to share her concerns about the stretch of road running between Evesham and Ashchurch.

The MP visited the school to talk to pupils and to hear their concerns. Many of the pupils are driven to and from school and have to turn left and right across dangerous junctions.

“I wanted to come to chat to them in person and reassure them I am working hard on their behalf to try and get the authorities to develop a plan to reduce speed as cars approach these difficult junctions,” Mrs Baldwin said.

“This is clearly a serious issue for pupils, their parents and teachers and I’ve agreed to share their messages with the people who are responsible for this road.

“I’ll keep the pressure up on National Highways to make this issue one of their top priorities,” she added.
