Measures put forward to improve traffic and safety on two bridges in Gerrards Cross have been approved, following applications from Gerrards Cross Town Council (GCTC).
The plans were submitted to Buckinghamshire Council last year, and were approved by their Planning Committee on April 12, 2023.
Traffic calming and pedestrian safety measures will be introduced on the railway bridges on Mill Lane, which is currently a two-way route on a blind bend, and Marsham Lane, which is narrow with no pavement.
A spokesperson for GCTC said: “GCTC will be proceeding, subject to final planning approvals, with two road safety schemes on Mill Lane and Marsham Lane.
“On Mill Lane, we will be making the approach wider from the East Common approach and will be adding a coloured pathway, which will hopefully improve safety all the way down to Lower Road.
“On Marsham Lane, we will also be including a coloured pathway to make it easier for pedestrians to cross the bridge safely.
“GCTC takes very seriously the safety of residents and visitors alike. These improvements have been under consideration for many years, but we now felt they needed to be done as we cannot overemphasise the need for safety, particularly as Mill Lane is used by many children from the Church of England school.”
