Road Signs Effective at Denaby

South Yorkshire Times January 25.

Road Signs effective at Denaby. 

Measures have been taken to make Denaby road accident “black spot” safer. Slow signals have been painted on the road and road junction signs have been erected.

At Tuesday’s meeting of Conisbrough Rodin Home Safety committee, secretary, Mr R Eriksson, reported that when the divisional road engineer, and inspected Doncaster road, he said that if a road accident figures warranted it a “Slow – Accident Area” sign would be erected as the committee had requested.

Mr Emerson said he had seen road figures for the last three years and he was still awaiting a reply.

In the accident reports for Denaby it was stated that the signs were having an effect, and motorists were reducing speed.

No warden.

The Conisbrough Ivanhoe Primary School will not have a traffic warden. The committee were told in a letter from the Divisional Education Authority. A warden had been suggested by parents at a public meeting, after young girl was killed in the vicinity – returning from school.

The Authority felt that the volume of traffic along Chestnut Avenue, did not justify a warden but suggested to the Urban Council that school signed be placed on the approach roads to the school and the Council, had agreed.

Mr H Marshall, headmaster of Conisbrough Station Road School asked if anything could be done about loose gravel chippings on roads, which could shatter windscreens and cause accidents.

Coucillor T.Hill, said that it was as dangerous to have too little chippings on the roads as too much, but the Committee saw Mr Marshall’s problem. They had people sweeping away loose chippings to prevent accidents.
