Station Road

Station Road campaign logoFollowing feedback from students the #saferstationrd campaign saw students working with local community groups to lobby the Council for improved safety measures on a busy road near the Sutton Bonington campus.

A large stretch of Station Road used by the local community had no street lights. In winter time, this made those travelling along the road feel particularly vulnerable, especially considering the speed at which vehicles travel there.

The campaign called for Nottingham County Council to take measures to improve safety on Station Road, including installing street lights.  Following the presentation of a petition signed by students and members of the local community, 25 new street lights were installed ready for the start of 2015.
