Erection of temporary speed sign by the Council

Residents may have seen the County Council doing some work today installing concrete foundations for erecting a temporary speed sign.

This is part of a pilot scheme with the County Council to reduce traffic speed in the estate, something we have lobbied for over the last three years. Members had been briefed on the initiative at our AGM last February and it was also mentioned in our April newsletter. The County Council had agreed locations for these signs with us earlier in the Autumn, but when they went to install the infrastructure they discovered an overlap with existing underground services. We were awaiting some information on revised locations and timescales but it looks like the council have already moved forward on the project.

The plan is to have a single sign, which will be moved between 4 locations (see map below), spending 6 weeks at each of the locations. (The first installation may be slightly longer, say 8 to 10 weeks max.). It is not the intention to leave the sign in situ in the estate.

The signage itself is due to be installed in the week starting 13th November.
