Hertfordshire County Council Response to e-petition for ‘Safe crossing for pedestrians at Goffs Lane / Rosedale Way / Lieutenant Ellis Way roundabout’:
As part of the Hertfordshire County Council Safer Routes to
School (SRTS) programme, education establishments that are
committed to developing more sustainable routes to school would be
considered as benefiting from the implementation of works within
the school site or public highway.
Schools are selected annually through the SRTS ranking process. As such, schools with accredited travel plans are prioritised and selected through the process and the SRTS team work with those schools with specific reference to their school travel plan to identify barriers and opportunities to sustainable travel on pupils’ routes to school.
In the case of Goffs Oak Secondary School, Highway Officers will work with the school to explore more sustainable journeys, which could include improving or providing footpath and cycle facilities, signage, crossings and traffic calming. However, as budgets are limited, there is no guarantee that the school would be ranked higher than other schools in the County who have also requested similar actions. We are keen, however to meet onsite to discuss your concerns, therefore are you able to contact us directly to arrange a meeting.
