Lollilop lady needed for school kids in Naas - Cllr

Lollipop lady
Calls have been made for a lollipop lady to help schoolkids cross the busy Sallins Road in Naas. Cllr James Lawless called for the resource at school times to facilitate children and parents walking in the Scoil Bhride back gate. Cllr Lawless said said worried parents had raised concerns about the danger of passing traffic to school kids. He said: "While there is a pedestrian crossing further up the road, most parents use the back gate of the school which cuts the journey time by 10 or 15 minutes and it is understandable with young children that parents would wish to avail of this shorter route. As councillors we need to make this route as safe as possible for parents and their young kids”. “I was told there is no budget for a lollipop lady but we can consider this in our own budget for 2016."
