SCHOOL children in Binfield have been shown some top tips on how to stay safe around building sites.

Children from the King’s Academy Binfield were visited by bosses from the building site developer Bloor Homes.

The pupils were shown the dangers of construction traffic lights and advised on how to keep themselves safe walking to and from school.

Laura Phillips, Assistant Principal at King’s Academy Binfield, said: “The wellbeing of our students is our number one priority, so it is great to have the support of Bloor Homes in spreading this extremely important health and safety message.”

Bloor Homes have built new houses, located just off Wood Lane in Binfield, down the road from the Kings Academy. 

Luke Southgate, Regional Sales Director at Bloor Homes Southern, said: “An inevitable consequence of work to create much-needed new homes is an increase in construction traffic, and vehicles such as dumper trucks, excavators and delivery lorries have blind spots and larger turning circles which can have a detrimental effect on visibility.

“We take all possible measures we can to minimise the impact of construction work on the local communities in which we build and educating young people about how to stay safe around building sites is a crucial part of this.”
