Winning designs by local pupils aim to slow traffic at Broomhouse

We challenged Primary 5 pupils of St Bridget’s Primary School in Baillieston to design a sign that could be installed near our show homes off Muirhouse Road in Broomhouse to encourage drivers to slow down.

Creating safe spaces in our community

The winning design - created by Anna Tomczakowskai (aged 9) - has been recreated as signs that are now installed near the show homes of our latest phase of new homes at Broomhouse. Anna also won a £50 book token.

The overall standard of designs was so high that a further seven posters were chosen to create a banner for Taylor Wimpey’s show area car park to remind drivers to keep their speed down whilst moving around the area. Each child also received a £20 book token.

The children at St Bridget’s Primary rose to the challenge with the whole class taking part as Mrs O’Donnell Head Teacher at St Bridget’s comments: “Having the opportunity to work with Taylor Wimpey to create speed signs has been an unusual challenge but a great way to deliver a very important message.

“This is a lovely connection between our school and the local Taylor Wimpey development at Broomhouse. The children all really enjoyed tackling their brief to create a bold and colourful design and we are very proud of their efforts.”
