Lambeth Council commission TMS to carry out assessments of existing school crossing patrol sites

TMS has recently been commissioned to carry out an assessment of existing school crossing patrol sites throughout a London Borough area. The aims of the assessment are to confirm that criteria to justify the presence of a school crossing patrol officer are still being met, and to establish whether any additional engineering measures would improve safety at any of the sites in the event of the patrol being withdrawn.

The assessments are being carried out at each site in line with procedures set out in the School Crossing Patrol Service Guidelines, published by Road Safety GB, including a full classified pedestrian and vehicle count, a pedestrian crossing assessment if appropriate and a detailed engineering site visit.

The final outcome of the study will be a ranked list of sites in order of priority for a patrol officer or for recommended alternative measures.
