I am confirming that a puffin crossing will be installed, with works starting on July 20th, 2020 at Woolmer Hill School. I have been working with the Highways team for several years to secure funding for this highways improvement that will help to improve road safety for the many pupils that walk to school and also encourage others to walk to reduce carbon emissions, traffic congestion and in promoting more active travel to benefit the health and well-being of the pupils and staff.
