My dd's school is on a busy roundabout. Over the summer break the pavements have all been replaced with smooth tarmac. This is great, but there used to be barriers / railings on all four street corners and outside the school gates. They have now all gone, and are not being replaced. Yesterday it was chaos, with mums trying to keep their dc's away from the busy road. This roundabout has been the site of many accidents in the last few years. I have rung the council, and am waiting for a 'road technician' to call me back to explain.
