Safety concerns relating to parking and vehicle movements close to two Ripon primary schools have prompted the city council to seek remedies.
Highways authority, North Yorkshire County Council, is being approached with a request to put double yellow lines on Highfield Road, close to the junction with Lead Lane.
A request is also being made for a 7.5 tonnes weight limit to be put in place on Quarry Moor Lane.
At last week’s full meeting of the city council, leader Andrew Williams, said:
“I am concerned that parents dropping off and collecting children from Moorside Primary School are creating problems for both pedestrians and other motorists, by parking close to the Highfield Road/Lead Lane junction.
“I have checked on the junction at the start of the school day and at school closing time when the junction is busy with cars parked on either side of the road and sight lines are affected, increasing the risk of an accident.”
Following a request from a resident living in Quarry Moor Lane, the council agreed that a weight limit on the road, which runs past Outwood Primary Academy Greystone, would reduce the risk for pupils attending the school.
Currently, heavy goods vehicles are able to use Quarry Moor en-route to and from the Dallamires Lane Industrial Estate.
