Issue Summary

CATG speeding traffic on B4040 Leigh area


Latest Update

07/04/2017 11:51:54 Thank you for raising your issue with the Area Board. The Council has set up a way for local people to decide local highway improvement priorities. A local community area transport group (CATG) of local people and elected councillors comes together to consider issues and proposals and to recommend those schemes that can be taken forward in any year. Before the CATG can consider a proposal, it must first consult the local parish or town council. Only if the parish supports the issue will it be considered further. If your issue is supported by the parish council, it will be submitted to the CATG for consideration. The CATG will then decide whether it should go forward onto the list of priority schemes. Resources are very limited, so it is important that schemes are prioritised in this way. Obviously, not all schemes can be taken forward and some proposals may have to wait a while before they become a priority for funding. The CATG makes recommendations to the Area Board who will decide which schemes will be funded and taken forward.

28/03/2017 14:25:14 Thank you for reporting your issue. The Council will investigate your concern and we will report back to you by email as soon as we have further information

Options for improvement limited and criteria for reduced limit to 30mph not met. Cllr Berry to speak to PCC to seek additional police enforcement support.


Speeding traffic on the B4040 Malmesbury Road Leigh at all times of the day. Evidence provided by the Community Speedwatch team. A number of accidents have occurred in recent times that required the attendance of all three emergency services. It is of particular concern when the school buses pick up and drop off. The stretch of road between the commencement of the 40mph limit and the Foresters Arms public house heading towards Cricklade is of particular concern.
