Finding Roadwork Companies To Install The School’s New Car Park

Roadwork Companies

At Townley School, we have been seeing some problems with congestion and with parking spaces. This has only continued to get worse as time passes. Therefore, we are going to be investing in a new car park and road system. The works will begin at the start of 2020 and we are currently looking into finding roadwork companies who will be able to handle this project for us. We have already had the plans drawn up and permission granted by the local authority so full steam ahead!

More details about our plans, granted we find the right roadwork companies, can be found below. If you have any questions about the new system then please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.

Adding New Car Park Spaces

As you will all know by now, there has been a lot of struggle each morning in the carpark. There is a large shortage of spaces available to both parents and teachers. This has led to many teachers having to park further away from the school which can be an inconvenience at times.

With the new plans, we will see 12 new car parking spaces added to the grounds. This will mean we can reserve 8 of the original car parking spaces for teachers and staff. This should hopefully mean there is less inconvenience for both staff and families.

Solve Congestion Problems

These works will also solve many of the congestion problems we have been having outside the school. A small roundabout will be installed just before the entrance to the car park which will allow traffic to move freely to exit and enter the car park, as well as allow parents to turn. This will stop the U-turns which have been occurring in the road every morning. It should make the roads a far safer place for the children who walk to school also.

With safety in mind, we will also be inputting a zebra crossing outside the school and in front of the car park. Please drive safely, particularly around 9am and 3pm.

Potential Roadwork Companies

At the moment there are a few roadwork companies we are considering to carry out the necessary works. One of our favourites in the running is RM Kennedy & Sons who are a reputable Scottish company who specialise in roadwork and tarmac driveways. We think they will be one of the best roadwork companies for this job after carrying out rigorous talks with them to create and develop our plans.

Temporary Interruptions

These works will begin in the month of April 2020. This will mean that there is some disruption during the school year but will mean the job can be completed efficiently on time for school reopening in August of that year. If you have a child that will be in attendance at Townley School in April-June 2020 and feel you may be affected, contact the school office and we will see what we can do for you.
