East Popley - Shakespeare Road Traffic calming measures

Did you know! the Council have decided that to reduce speeding on Shakespeare Road they are adding road narrowing  areas and extra crossing points to reduce speed around the area of Shakespeare Road.

I have contacted the council and suggested a one-way system in the direction of the current bus route but the council has decided that these new changes of road narrowing points will be started soon with a date TBC.

The above idea from the council I see will reduce the on road parking for all who park on Shakespeare Road, a one-way system would free up one side of the road for vehicles to park and reduce damage to parked cars and vans, it will also help reduce the speed to 20mph sign post speed limit, which will make crossing safer for a children/pedestrians and stop any head on collisions and side on crashes from cars turning out on to a two way road from behind obscured parked vehicles.

The reason to why I believe a one way system is the best option is because the council conducted a survey in 2014 on parking in East Popley and we can up as a low priority and we were not in need of more parking on are roads off of Shakespeare Road.

A one-way system would give that parking space with reduced damage to park cars and vans and reduce the collisions on Shakespeare Road.
