Kate Salmon is calling for a new school-safe crossing on busy Charminster Road

Kate Salmon, local parent and Green Party speaker for Moordown, has started a campaign for a new pedestrian crossing on Charminster Road, in the area north of the Moordown-catchment schools and children’s centre on East Way and Malvern Road.

Kate explains: “There is no safe place to cross for quite a long stretch, from south of East Way north to Castle Lane.

It concerns me - many children walk to school that way. They have to take a chance crossing the busy main road.

"I think it’s a large part of why so many parents seem to drive their children to school round here.

“I’ve written to BCP Council asking what can be done on providing a new crossing.”
