Crossings put safety first for kids; BILLESLEY.
Billesley Infant and Nursery School, in Trittiford Road, will benefit from new pedestrian crossings as part of the Safer Routes to School scheme.
The programme, run by Birmingham City Council, encourages youngsters to walk, cycle or use public transport to get to school. Coun Len Gregory, cabinet member for transportation and street services, said: "Road safety is very important, particularly close to our schools. "These measures will benefit local residents and encourage more pupils to walk or cycle to school."
