Traffic Calming

Build on out...

So; the traffic calming build-out on New Road in Chiseldon is probably going ahead.  This is despite my robust objection to the plans, and no real evidence to support  it in terms of the road safety or accident reduction being offered.  In fact, from a Freedom of Information request I put into the Borough Council, I found that over the last 10 years there have been 12 recorded accidents along the road, of which only one occurred in the vicinity of the proposed build-out.  In that single incident, it was unlikely that the cause was attributable to speed and thus any build-out installed probably would not have prevented its occurrence.
