One-way proposal for child safety
PROPOSALS have been put forward to make a section of a busy Clevedon road one-way in the hope of making it safer for schoolchildren.
Clevedon Town Council’s transport and highways committee has agreed to write to North Somerset Council to suggest a section of Chapel Hill, between the junctions with Highdale Avenue and Highdale Road, be made one way.
This would see traffic only being allowed to travel up the hill.
The idea follows an appeal made by parents of children attending nearby St Nicholas Chantry Primary School for changes to be made at the junction of Chapel Hill, Lower Linden Road and Highdale Avenue.
They believe the junction is dangerous due to poor visibility and also the speed in which cars travel both up and down the hill.

An online petition was set up to lobby North Somerset Council for changes to be made to the junction, which they have to cross each day to get to and from school.
