Success for residents ‘under-pass’ campaign

Friday, February 16, 2007

Residents of the Guildford Grange extra care scheme have won their campaign to travel safely across the road on their scooters thanks to money from the Park Heeley Area Panel. An existing underpass currently only has steps, and is impassable by scooter or for those with prams and buggies. The residents of Guildford Grange have been campaigning to change the steps into a slope but there was a £3,000 shortfall - now the Park Heeley Area Panel is to contribute £1,500 to help ensure the work can start in April.


Councillor John Robson, Chair of the Park Heeley Area Panel, explains:


"This has taken a long time to sort out and the residents regularly contact us for help. I'm delighted that the Area Panel has been able to secure the final funds to enable the work to be done so that residents can use the underpass. The underpass links the extra care scheme to Norfolk Park Community School so this is a very important link for local people."


Meg Munn MP was with Cllr Robson for the celebrations at Guildford Grange. She said:


"Guildford Grange is a great place to live, but getting out and about is really important. We all need a change of scenery from time to time and the new slope will make such a difference."


Albert Lowe, one of the campaigning residents was delighted. He uses a scooter and said:


"This will really help us, many of us here are over 80 and this road gets really busy at peak times.  It will also be great for kids and parents with prams to get to school safely."
