The safe route to the Baubigny Schools for children living in St. Peter Port North will be open for the new school term

August 22nd, 2010 by Pat Wisher

You are invited to join Living Streets at 10.00 a.m on Monday 30th August so that we can show you the new pathway through the vinery site which links the track behind The Island Bowl to the school campus (Perry’s Page 10 A4/5)

Assemble in the large Island Bowl car park. Come on foot, on your bike or by car (parking by kind permission of the Bowl)

Our journey has had many twists and turns.  We want to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged us, especially our sponsors, without whom we could not have succeeded

Living Streets recommended alternative route for students coming from the Bouet area is Ivy Castle Lane, Chateau des Marais and then through the gate into the new housing development in Victoria Avenue and up to The Bowl.

Living Streets has done 10 traffic surveys in Pitronnerie Road Industrial Estate of which seven were on separate days.

Living Streets has been working on this project for the last three years and have faced many hurdles.

Living Streets’ contribution to the new Baubigny Schools route has been the development of the pathway through the private vinery site which backs onto the school campus. Without our successful negotiation with the landowner to secure a strip of land through his vinery, the route could not have been developed.

The pathway in the vinery is the “missing link” that makes it possible for students to use the existing footpaths through the green lung between St. Peter Port and St. Sampson and then take a short cut through the vinery site to the gate at the back of the schools. It will take students on foot about 15 minutes to reach the school.

We are now ready to open up the route and would like to invite you to join us to see what we have been doing.
