Zig Zag Road Lines outside School

March 31, 2017

You may have noticed that the zig zag lines outside of our school have faded over time and are in need of being repainted in order to have the desired effect of stopping dangerous and illegal parking in front of the school. The Governing Body would like to ask parents if they could spare a few minutes of their time to please send a quick email to Councillor David Williams at with a polite request for this to be actioned. Thank you for in advance for your help.

Update 21/04/2017: Thank you to our Governing Body and to all parents and carers who contacted Hertfordshire County Council about the need for the zig zag lines to be repainted outside of our school.  We are pleased to let you know that it seems to have had the desired affect.  We have received the following email from Councillor David Williams:

Further to our recent exchanges, I have received confirmation from St Albans District Council that they have added this location to their next order.

However, to manage expectations, I’ve been advised that their next order will be placed in May – works are grouped together to ensure value for money with the contractor. The lines are normally then laid between 46 weeks after the order is confirmed.

All somewhat frustrating as I’m sure you would wish to have the lines in place for the start of next term.

Kind regards
