ADDITIONAL speed-reducing measures have been installed outside of a school in Earley, following concerns over dangerous driving.

The Wokingham Borough Council installed additional chicanes outside the Hillside Primary School, after a number of complaints were made regarding children's welfare from parents, teachers and residents in the area.

It is hoped that the additional chicanes, placed outside the school on Rushey Way, Lower Earley, will slow down drivers to the designated 20mph limit and alleviate these safety concerns.

Wokingham Borough Councillor Andrew Mickleburgh, Lib Dem councillor for Earley, said: "A huge thanks to WBC for responding to calls by the school and by Clive Jones and myself for a number of months now, for measures that will give greater encouragement to drivers to keep to the 20 mph speed limit outside the school.

"This additional chicane along with the additional signage that we have also been asking for, but is yet to be installed, should help to make this busy roadway much safer for the many children and parents who cross it every school day."
