Road safety banners for Slough Council

Slough Borough Council’s sustainable transport team Better by, supplied primary schools throughout the borough with a blank poster for pupils to create a simple and bold design based around road safety. Two school pupils have won a competition to design a road safety banner and will now have them displayed outside their schools.

Natasha from Arbour Vale School was picked as a winner and it was converted into a banner. She also received a gift voucher to spend. The banners featuring the children’s artwork will now take pride of place next to the school gates.

Neil Sykes, Principal at Arbour Vale School, said he was extremely proud of his student’s design. He said: “This will remind people of being safe and to reduce their speed around the school gates and it has been beautifully created by one of our pupils.”

Dean Gray, the school’s development manager, said: “This is an important message that we want to send out to motorists. It was also a great way to engage with the students and talk to them and remind them about road safety.”

Ramandeep Gogna, a sustainable transport officer, said: “What talented young people we have to create such eye catching posters which motorists will hopefully see and take heed of. Road safety around schools is really important, not just to prevent accidents involving children, but to make an effort to reduce congestion around the school gate. In addition by taking the journey in another way, pollution around schools, and the pupils, can also be reduced. I want to say thank you to everyone who entered and well done to the winners Natasha and Dyuti.”
