A West Broadway resident says the situation there shows no
sign of abating". "It feels like we are now living on a main
road and this coupled with the speed with which some vehicles
travel is causing dangers for residents" they add.Others have
expressed the view that a 20 mph limit might help - although it
might not be taken notice of by the motorists who regularly
travel at 40 mph.
Another resident describes a near miss head on collision outside
her house with her 3 year old son who was nearly knocked over
when a car used the pavement to get round other carsThe residents group are pushing for Neighbourhood Partnership funding
for a survey which would analyse road usage, speeding and parking and
decide if traffic calming measures are needed.
They believe that a traffic restriction scheme, similar to the
successful one now in place in Farrington Road and Cherington Road,
should be introduced.
