The new access road to Trinity has now opened in time for the start of the new academic year. Work was finished on the road at the start of the summer school holidays and allows access from Ladgate Lane to provide an easier route for pupils, staff and parents.
Only buses carrying pupils, staff vehicles and visitors are allowed on site or pupils requiring access for special reasons such as disability or injury.
Parents are to use the drop off point at Acklam Rugby Club.
The road not only provides good access to Trinity and enhanced safety for pupils from all parts of the town but also alleviates traffic pressure on Saltersgill Avenue which has been extremely busy and whose residents have been really tolerant.
Councillor Tracy Harvey, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive member for environment, said:
“It is pleasing to see the new access road now open and hope that the whole school community and wider public soon begin to see the benefit of it.
