Long awaited traffic calming installed in Moor Row
Traffic calming measures - a number of "speed thumps" - have finally been installed over the last few days in Scalegill Road, Moor Row within my division.
It was agreed some time ago that Section 106 money obtained from a developer for a contribution to pay for traffic measures as a condition for planning permission should be used in this way.
It was also agreed that the "speed thumps" would initially be installed at minimum thickness, and left at that thickness if if did the job, but made thicker if that was necessary to slow the traffic down more.
I went down this morning to see what effect the measures were having and they did seems to be making drivers curb their speed slightly.
I would be interested in feedback, particularly from residents of Moor Row, on how the measures are working.
