Angela Gilbert, the Leaside Way street rep, took up the invitation sent to residents of Leaside Way and attended the Working Group on the School’s Travel Plan. This might not seem of much relevance to residents, but the meeting was an opportunity to meet with school staff and representatives of the bus companies. Angela did complain about lines of waiting buses belching out fumes and parents parking on the verges. Carol Bagshaw, from the City Council, said a pedestrian phase will be introduced into the traffic lights at the Bassett Green Road /Stoneham Lane cross roads.

During the work on the new building for leisure facilities, due to start in September, use of the public footpath to the back of the school may be disrupted. Contractors have been told they must not take their heavy vehicles along Leaside Way very early in the morning.
