There are several local roads which are being used frequently as a racetrack. There have been a number of accidents and we desperately need some form of traffic calming on Stenson Road and Wragley Way.

The following issues need to be considered as a matter of urgency:

A crossing is needed on Stenson Road to allow children to cross safely from the new estate to Stenson Fields Primary school. There has been an incident where a child has been knocked over and it is only a matter of time before another accident happens. 

The national speed limit between the Wragley Way junction and the Bubble Inn needs to be lowered. This is too short a stretch of road for the speed limit. 

There should be some form of traffic calming on Wragley Way. This very straight road attracts ‘boy racer’ types on a regular basis. Several cars were written off 18 months ago along this stretch when a van mounted the pavement. Not too long ago a pedestrian was injured in a similar incident. 

The tragic accident last weekend has been a devastating reminder of how desperately the safety of these roads needs addressing. 

The local councils have been asked to look at this previously and have refused but enough is enough. How many more accidents have to happen for something to be done?!
