Issue Summary

Speed of vehicles travelling along Sadlers Mead Chippenham


Latest Update

11/08/2017 12:40:08 Speed of vehicles to be monitored. Metro Count Request form issued for completion and return.

CATG Action / Recommendation


I wish to report vehicles significantly exceeding the speed limit along Sadlers Mead Chippenham. I note that within the planning application for the college development 200 cars were recorded exceeding 30 mph within 7 days and this was on the S bend near the Olympiad car park. Yesterday a delivery driver asked me whether this road is the local race track he expressed astonishment at the speed of cars along the road. It is not unusual for cars to Tavel at in my opinion at approx. 50 mph The worst section is the straight part of the road from No.2 to No.42.
