Issue Summary

CATG speeding traffic along Filands B4014


Latest Update

02/03/2018 08:15:13 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. We will keep you informed of progress as we go through the steps outlined.

CATG Action / Recommendation


Speeding along Filands B4014 Speeding is still a notable issue along the B4014 despite a Speedwatch Group being put in place. Logged speeds have exceeded 80 mph however 60 mph is commonplace. Speeds such as this place those turning out of junctions along the road at extreme risk as visibility can be poor while an increasing number of pedestrians also now walk along the pavement from the new estate.


Issue Location


Street / Location

Filands along whole length

Electoral Division


Issue Duration

Multiple years though risk has increased with new housing developments.

Who is Affected

Residents along Filands and drivers turning out of junctions.

What has been done so far

Local Speedwatch has been set up and currently has four active members.

What would resolve issue

40 mph is probably a reasonable limit however signage has faded and other non-physical measures would probably help e.g. painted 40 mph signs on the road and hatched lines to prevent overtaking by junctions and houses. Possibly also a painted filter area for turnings to Hitchings Close and David Hendry Cars. I would like to present a report containing suggestions to the CATG if possible.

Who needs to come together

Wiltshire Council Highways dept. Possibly Wiltshire Police.
