Dr Dan has today backed local school children in their fight for safer roads in Whitton.Together with local pupils, he has set up a survey to ask the local community's views on important road safety issues affecting St Pancras Primary School and older residents.
Concerns were raised by pupils and staff about the safety of children and older residents crossing the road near the school during one of Dr Dan's regular school visits. He is supporting the school's road safety campaign by asking residents what improvements and traffic calming measures they would like to see to the surrounding roads, in order to help him to better represent their views to Suffolk County Council, who are responsible for local road safety.
Dr Dan said, "It is important that the concerns of pupils about road safety and traffic problems at St Pancras Roman Catholic Primary School are properly listened to. Public service is about listening to the people of North Ipswich and I shall always do my very best to help local residents. I hope to be able to take the pupils and the local community's views to the County Council to deliver improvements to road safety for the benefit of our children and older residents."
Mr Stephen Barker, Headteacher at St Pancras Roman Catholic Primary School, added, "I am grateful to Dr Poulter as our local MP for his support for our pupils. Given that adults - school staff and local residents alike - have been trying to improve traffic conditions on Stratford Road and Cedarcroft Road for some years, without success, it seems logical that those most at risk - the children - should now take their turn".

I know she...
