Stockton Council provides a wide range of services and advice to reduce casualties on our roads.
In addition to keeping the roads and pavements safe and clear through regular maintennce and cleaning we also provide:
School Crossing Patrol
We operate a Crossing Patrol service at more than 40 locations across the Borough.
Drivers should be aware that they are required by law to stop when requested to do so by a Crossing Patroller. Any motorist caught ignoring or abusing a patroller will have their details passed on to the police for prosecution - motorists who fail to do so risk a fine of up to £1000 and 6 penalty points on their license.
Parents and children should use the patrols provided and follow the guidance of the Patroller when crossing.
Cyclists wishing to cross the road need to be aware that it is a legal requirement for them to dismount as the patroller will not stop traffic for them.
For more information about our Crossing Patrol Service please contact 01642 393939 or email us at EGDS@stockton.gov.uk.
Cycling - A19 Alternative Route
In July 2015 Highways England implemented a decision to ban cycling on the A19 between the A689 Wolviston Interchange in the north and the A174 Interchange in the south following consultation with stakeholders.
The downloadable map shown here shows an alternative route for cyclists heading north or south through the Borough avoiding this section of the A19.
Road Casualty Review
This report is published annually and incorporates road collision and casualty statistics and trends in the Borough. It assists in providing the basis for many of the road safety studies and initiatives throughout the year. You can view the Road Casualty Review for 2013 by opening the link below:
