Back in 2009, I was delighted when the City Council agreed to my request, made on behalf of the parents of pupils of Blackness Primary School and Harris Academy, for a school crossing patroller on busy Blackness Road at the Kelso Steps.
This is a busy crossing and I have had constituents ask for an assurance that the patroller will not be removed when Harris Academy is decanted to Rockwell as he will continue to assist Blackness Primary School pupils cross this busy road.
I am pleased to say that the Director of Education has advised me:
"There are no plans to move this patroller."
