A zebra crossing in Greenfield-the village’s first-has been installed on Chew Valley Road in readiness for the opening of the newly built Greenfield Primary School, Shaw Street on Tuesday, September 3.
School Safety Zones signs on Chew Valley Road and Greenbridge Lane have also been erected. The positioning of the zebra has caused concern to Saddleworth South ward councillors and some local residents.
However, Oldham Council traffic engineer Andy Marsh said: “Following the design process and highway safety considerations, the site advertised – Chew Valley Road, 10m south east of Greenbridge Road, is the preferred location for a zebra crossing.”
