The Town Council included funds in its 2017/18 budget to purchase a Speed Indication Device Sign due to continuing concerns about persistent speeding around the town’s schools. Over the last two years, the Council has received many complaints about parking and speeding vehicles around schools.
Whilst all our local schools have implemented methods to attempt to alleviate these problems, the Council decided that the purchase of a Speed Indication Device would assist schools and residents further in trying to re-educate drivers regarding speed limits on key streets within the town.
In partnership with the County Council and local schools, seven sites have been highlighted as problematic.
The sign will be located at all these sites on a rotational basis.
The Council would be interested to receive feedback from residents and school users, to ascertain whether the sign makes a difference to the speed of traffic when in situ. You can submit your views by email to: email@example.com or by telephone 01524 422929
The Council would like to thank Lancashire County Council for its assistance in erecting the mounting plates and poles at the seven sites at no cost to the Town Council.
