Kieran Probst started this petition to Walsall Council

We, the undersigned, call upon Walsall Council, in the light of a high number of accidents and ongoing crashes and damage to property in Barns Lane, Rushall   to revise its oft-stated position of no or minimal action in regard to long-standing community and councillor requests to: 


(a) put in place physical measures to reduce speeding;
(b) re-route through HGV traffic away from the heavily residential areas of Barns Lane and Spring Road, Shelfield; and
(c) ensure that, meanwhile, in conjunction with West Midlands Police, there is regular, frequent enforcement against speeding drivers in the Westgate/Barns Lane 20 mph zone.

"We therefore ask the Council to instruct officers to bring forward effective measures to address the issues above as a matter of urgency." 

Cllr Richard Worrall (Labour) and Cllr Vera Waters (Conservatives) has worked with the local authority to reduce the speed in our area, however after the speed was reduced from 30mph to 20mph there has been a massive lack of enforcement from Walsall Council and the ignorance to the reduced speed hasn't happened. We, as the residents of Barns Lane and the surrounding areas need to work together to get changes in our streets and work with the council to help reduce the number of accidents that happen in our lane.
