Safe routes to school a step nearer; Revised plans set to be unveiled.
EFFORTS by the city council to encourage pupils in the Stoke area of Coventry to walk or cycle to school are gathering pace.
After months of consultation with Stoke Park School, Stoke Primary School and Sacred Heart Primary School, as well as residents, the council is preparing to unveil amended plans for its "safer routes to school" scheme.
Proposals include improving Dane Road, Shakespeare Street, Briton Road, Stoke Row and Roman Road.
There are plans to introduce 20mph zones at Brays Lane and install crossing points for schoolchildren, and to improve the roundabout near the Forum bowling alley.
Since the authority put forward its improvement plans, many residents have given their views and some plans have been altered to take these into account.
Cllr John McNicholas, cabinet member for environmental services, said: "Although the proposals for this area have not yet been finalised, we have listened to local people and are working on various amendments to the plans.
''We will be arranging a number of opportunities during April for people to look at the plans before we go ahead with the scheme."
Dates when the amended plans go on display will be included in the council's newsletter, Street News, next month.
