Talfourd/Melrose/Belle Avenue & Holmes Road
I have been lobbying Cllr Richard Willis, the Lead Member for Transport, for this new limit as I believe these roads, made narrow by cars parked both sides, would be made safer – particularly for children and pets – and bring a reduction in noise, thereby improving the quality of life in the area.
At this morning’s meeting with Transport officers I discussed further, together with Cllr Rob White, bringing in a 20 mile an hour limit in these roads. A report will be brought to TMAP (Transport Management Advisory Panel) on 17th March.
About half the transport s106 monies from Wimpey Homes’ Green Road development will be used to implement this scheme as traffic problems have been brought about as a direct result.
When the report is published I will post a link on my website.
Update – You can read the report here: TMAP Report
