The High Street and the Devizes Road
a long time
Who is Affected
all the residents especially children and their parents on their way to and from the school
What has been done so far
raised a petition which has been signed by 79 residents of Box so far. Various efforts including being involved with setting up Give Box a Break community speed watch and collaboration between the primary school and the Police.
What would resolve issue
The installation of two intelligent speed cameras as have been trialed in the village of Rodborough in Gloucestershire to record the speed of traffic both in on the high street near the school and on the Devizes road where heavy lorries continually speed into Box down the hill. The suggestion being a sharing of the cost of the system between the residents of Box and Wiltshire Council.
Who needs to come together
Wiltshire Council, Box Parish Council, the police, community speed watch and 'give Box and break'.
