Residents have called for action to slow down traffic in Collingwood Road. Parents at Westbourne School raised their concerns at the regular meeting we have with the police. They listed a number of accidents and near misses caused by speeding and careless driving. They are also concerned about buses speeding along the road late at night. As a result we have called a meeting between police, the traffic engineers and the bus company.
The meeting will be looking to ensure the problems are well understood and will look at a range of options including:
- better crossing faclities
- more effective speed humps
- any other solutions
These problems are not new, and residents have been consulted on a crossing proposal in the past, and have rejected it. However the problem has got worse.
