Safety scheme to be extended

Have your say

A ROAD safety scheme could be extended to every school in Rotherham after the success of a pilot project launched earlier this autumn.

Rotherham-based road surface specialist SteelPhalt provided fluorescent armbands to junior schools in Thorpe Hesley and Thyrbergh.

Dean Raynor, SteelPhalt commercial manager, said: “Motorists have to be alert and our armbands should help improve pedestrian visibility on those darker walks to and from school.”
