20 mph at St Barts SchoolA concerned resident who has a child attending St Barts School has requested clarification of the position. There is a 20mph sign warning "school ahead" by the garage at the Stoops as motorists come into Rainhill but no such warning sign for motorists who are driving in the opposite direction towards Junction 7 of the M62.
20 MPH schemes are only advisory and motorists would not get warned or fined for being non adherent.
I have sought clarifiction myself from council officers and have been told that the speed of vehicles leaving the motorway and heading into Rainhill Village is more of an issue as opposed to the opposite direction. Additionally the footpath was of insufficient width to locate such a sign. Fortunately for the pupils of St Barts, your councillors were able to campaign for a pelican crossing at the location, which is in itself an indication to motorists to slow down and be more aware.
