Hello

I am petitioning Hull City Council for an additional speed bump on Sharp Street towards the dead end of the street (away from Newland Avenue).

I wrote the following request to Hull City Council in January but have heard nothing.

I have been a resident at 162 Sharp Street for 15 years, there have been speed bumps present for some years now. However at the end of the street there has not been one present (the current ones are equidistant along the street) and people speed up after the last bump (positioned at 141/ 142) to go to the bottom of the street.

Recently a new housing development has been built extending the previously dead end to a cul-de -sac with additional road / parking and vehicles meaning a greater number of vehicles and a greater distance to increase speed.

This means the speed bumps are no longer equidistant to the bottom of the cul-de-sac.

There are a lot of children who play in the street as it is a dead end (hence the traffic calming measures in the first place - the existing speed bumps). Residents in the street currently ran the first Playing out session in the street to great success and we want to continue that.

The new residents and people turning round in the cul-de-sac are speeding up after the last speed bump and often going over 30mph.

I felt there was a call for an additional speed bump before the new housing estate but it is definitely required now to add the same traffic calming as the rest of the street has.

It would also be good if there were signs to say this is a play zone around house 139 to the new housing estate and vice versa but the speed bump is the priority

Thanks for you help with this.

Regards
Billy Smithers

If you could support me in petitioning for this cause that would be great.
