Fears grow over Carmageddon as Holy Cross Primary set to expand

Education: Primary / Wed 25th Jun 2014 at 11:23am

RESIDENTS and local councillors have expressed concerns over parking outside Holy Cross primary as the school is set to expand.

The popular Catholic primary in Tracyes Road, Harlow has been given the green light for another 200 school places.

However, residents are concerned that the parking problems that exist at the moment will become a “living hell”.

At the moment, each morning and afternoon is punctuated by parents parking on the pavement, parking on grass, parking on zebra crossings and double lines.

Bush Fair councillor Ian Beckett has been co-ordinating concerns from resident in Spencers Croft and surrounding areas.

Spencers Croft resident Les Stevens said: “The parking is bad enough at the moment but I have no idea how they will cope with another 200 students coming to the school.

“This has not been thought through and will create a real headache for the area. My real concern is that it will take a terrible accident to happen until someone properly deals with the problem.”

So far, a small patch of land formerly used as parking next to the cycle-track on Tracyes Road, has been fenced off to prevent parents parking there.
