WIDER pavements and new pedestrian islands outside a Fenland school were shown off this week after three years work on safety improvements.
The work has seen part of Elm Road, Wisbech, made narrower in a bid to slow traffic outside Elm Road Primary School, and made safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road.
The improvements were jointly funded by Cambridgeshire County Council's Safer Routes to School Project and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership.
Rosemary Mullen, the Safer Routes to School project officer for the school, said: "Everyone has worked hard for this much-needed improvement and I am delighted with the result."

Elm Road Primary School joined the county council's Safer Routes to School project in 2005, with a working party made up of parents, staff, councillors, police officers and a Safer Routes to School project officer working on the project.
