School Crossing Patroller on Blackness Road

Last month, I updated residents about my request that the school crossing patroller on Blackness Road at the Kelso Steps be replaced as soon as possible.

The Education Department has now updated me as follows :

"I am awaiting the disclosure check for the prospective employee who will be appointed once this is confirmed. He will be trained and appointed once this is received."

I am anxious to see this matter resolved quickly as the crossing is a busy one for both Blackness Primary School and Harris Academy pupils, so it was good to hear of progress towards this.
