The new crossing was celebrated with children from the school.
A spokesperson said:
‘Last year, the Jesse Gray School Council, with the help from Councillor Wheeler, worked really hard to secure the installation of a zebra crossing, outside the school gates.
‘The School Council decided to do this because we had been seeking a new lollipop person for over a year.
‘It was clear that no replacement could be found. A petition was then set up in November 2019 with the support of Councillor Wheeler.
‘Due to the number of signatures on the petition, the NCC conducted a travel survey on Musters Road. The results demonstrated that a zebra crossing was desperately needed in order to ensure the safe crossing of the road, by the children attending Jesse Gray and the public, in general.
