Following concerns raised by local resident, businesses and parents at Wimborne Infant and Junior Schools, pressure is mounting on the council to act over a popular lollipop service on Winter Road in Southsea.
Concerned locals have been in touch with Paula Ann Savage to press the city council’s traffic and transportation team into action.
The Milton Mum shares the concerns of the community and is taking action on their behalf.
Paula has set up a petition to lobby the council and has recently met city MP Stephen Morgan to share concerns and details of the petition.
“The lack of a Road Safety Officer (lollipop service) to support children attending Wimborne infant and junior schools is a real local issue people have been raising with me on the doorstep and whilst out and about in the community.
Winter Road is a main road in and out of Southsea and the loss of a road safety officer at peak school times is a huge concern for us and parents at the schools.
Today I have spoken with dozens and dozens of concerned parents and locally people about the issue. The council must now take swift action to assure our community”.
Stephen Morgan MP added:
“Residents have been in touch with me about this local issue and I share their concerns. Last week I wrote to the director responsible and council officers in the Traffic and Transportation department are expected to be following up our concerns this week.
I am very grateful to Paula and other local residents who have raised this matter with me. I will continue to work with all involved to ensure a solution is found for our community”.
