New footpath makes school run safer

Published Wednesday 12 November 2014 at 15:24

A new footpath has been created for parents and pupils which will improve pedestrian access to Lower Darwen St James Primary School in Blackburn.

It has been built on a formerly grassed area along the access road adjacent to the school at Stopes Brow.

The footpath can also be used by members of the public and gives a safer environment for pedestrians, meaning they no longer have to walk up the middle of the access road as before.

It was funded by Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Local Transport Plan which promotes a range of transport improvements in the borough.

Councillor Maureen Bateson, Executive Member for Regeneration, said:

This new footpath is much safer for pupils, parents and the public. It is something that the Headteacher, MP, local councillors and parents have campaigned for.
