Safety parents #1 concern on Mill Road

Last month we reported on our survey of local parents’ views on school travel. Nearly three quarters rated low levels of traffic on Mill Road is “important” or “very important”.

We also asked those parents whether their kids use Mill Road to get to school or not. Of those families whose kids’ route to school should include Mill Road, safety concerns put off more than half from using it.

And these safety concerns aren’t imaginary. A recent FOI request has revealed that Mill Road has the most traffic collisions of any road in Cambridgeshire.

Our canvassing shows overwhelming local support for traffic restrictions on Mill Road – so what are our politicians waiting for?
