GREAT Sankey High School has submitted a planning application to build a new bridge in the school grounds.

The proposed new bridge would be built across an 'unnamed' stream connecting to the existing school site.

Plans state it would link the new sports hall to the main school playing field and to ease the traffic flow over the existing single foot bridge already in place.

The site is currently used provide additional facilities due to an increase in the number of students year-on-year within the school.

Plans submitted in April reveal the bridge would link to the new sports hall which is currently under construction on the former Barrow Hall Primary School site.
