We’ve made things a little safer for pupils in Colchester by repainting a zebra crossing in time for their return to school.
Yellow zigzag warning lines were added to the roadside as well, after the old measures had faded outside Queen Boudica Primary School, in Cowper Crescent, helping to raise concerns about safety.
Our Eastern region stepped in with the fresh, durable paint job, as well as avoiding adding traffic to the school run by specially organising delivery times to where we’re building homes at our high quality Northfields development nearby.
Colin Livesey, head of technical at Linden Homes Eastern, explained: “The interests and safety of the local community are paramount to our working in Colchester.
"We have repainted the zebra crossing and yellow zig-zag lines to ensure that safety is maintained around the school area. This work has been completed in time for the pupils returning to school after the summer break.
“The repainting in conjunction with our time restrictions for material deliveries and defined traffic routes will promise maximum safety for those walking to and from the school and also will help keep other pedestrians safe in the area, while construction continues.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
