Beckford School – consultation on road safety improvements, Dornfell Street
There are four entrances to Beckford School on the south side of Dornfell Street (for infants, nursery, main and juniors going from west to east). Dornfell Street is one-way westbound – there should be a cycle exception.
Currently there is ‘School Keep Clear’ marking on the south side of the street outside the nursery and junior entrances while there are two disabled parking bays outside the main entrance. Most of the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings will be replaced by a wider footway.
The consultation proposes the following measures:
1. Widen the footway on the north side of the Dornfell Street opposite the nursery entrance (losing one parking space)
2 Remove the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings and widen the footway outside the nursery entrance. But provide two new parking bays at the western end (i.e. the widened footway doesn’t cover all of the space occupied by the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings.
3. Widen the footway on the south side of the Dornfell Street outside the junior entrance, leaving the two existing disabled parking bays outside the main entrance.
4. Install secure cycle parking (Bikehangar - Cyclehoop or Asgard) at the east end of the street – north side.
