Have you noticed the red concrete bands appearing on the roads around the estate ? These will be on the entrance to the estate say at the bottom of Collingwood Drive, there is one on Frampton Way etc.
Took me a few minutes to understand what they were. Of course they are in preparation for the 20MPH zone here. When I found out about these I was in favour and I am still in favour of them.
In a residential area full of families some of the speeds we see around here are dangerous. It is for more good luck than judgement we have only a few serious incidents over the years. However I have a great concern that these will be simply be ignored. There is no way it seems of enforcing these and thus will it negate any possible benefit ?
We shall soon see. I have not seen the results of the consultation and I have placed a FOI request for this.
