Issue Summary

CATG Speeding through Pinkney


Latest Update

27/11/2017 13:09:01 B4040 Pinkney - Metro-count result. 85th percentile speed = 42.7mph Mean speed = 37.5mph

17/07/2017 14:58:02 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.

CATG Action / Recommendation

19/12/2017 09:26:08 5/12/17 Metro count 85% ile 42.7mph Mean = 37.5mph Site visit undertaken. Findings to be reported to CATG. Path to be cleared, new crossroad sign to be added closer to the junction and replace the existing sign to improve reflectivity. Plan and costing to next meeting

27/11/2017 13:09:01 B4040 Pinkney - Metro-count result. 85th percentile speed = 42.7mph Mean speed = 37.5mph

19/09/2017 13:55:27 12/09/17 - Metro count requested and should be in place within next 2-3 weeks. Road assessment of the road would be completed by Atkins which costs 2.5k. B4040 last assessed 2009/10 with recommendation of 40mph to remain. No further development, so probably no change in recommendation. Following the recent accident the Police report: speed was one of the accident factors. Replacement signs have been ordered and will be installed asap. SC: junction is just on stopping distance limit at 40 mph. Sight lines need to be considered and move the entry to the limited area needs to be moved. Top dressing has not improved condition of the carriageway. JT: skid test needed? Re-surfacing removed the orange pad gateway which has exacerbated the speeding issue. Check if it will be replaced. Speed data to be reported back following the metro count. Check sight lines from side roads based on metro count results. Other signage discussed. MR to review. Cost in region of 2-3k.
