Speeding through village

Post by Spitfire » 21 May 2019, 09:22

I’ve never seen it mentioned on here to date, but I wondered if others are concerned about the speeding through the village (more so now with the new road surfacing) and that a speed ramp is required for the road directly between the church and Chungs.

This is a danger for drivers exiting from SuperValu and commercial users and residents of the Ballisk development. Trucks and cars speed into the village past the graveyard / parish hall and ignore the SLOW sign on the road as they approach the pedestrian crossing. Personally I’m not a fan of ramps in general as they wreck suspension on the car but can’t fathom that they’d lay a new road and not consider this for our village - for both pedestrians and vehicle users.
Maybe I’m the only one that notices it! ...?

If anywhere, should be a raised crossing at the Pelican crossing on Main Street.
This would also remove the puddle (when rains) at said crossing

I agree there are some drivers who do drive too quickly through the village.
What's the official limit? 50km/h?
I'd argue for 40 TBH from the train station to just beyond Beaverstown Road.
I hate ramps though.
