21/11/2017 06:50:14 The Road Safety Unit had provided the results of Metro Count: Traffic Speed Survey Result A420 North Wraxall (60mph Speed Limit) - East of Old Coach Road The Results of the survey for the area of North Wraxall are provided below. The survey was carried out between 01/11/2017 and 11/11/2017. A total of 48792 vehicles were checked. The 85th percentile was 62.2mph (the 85th percentile is the speed at which 85% of the traffic is travelling at or below). The average speed was 55.2mph. As with every other department, we have to target our limited resources to where they will be most effective and as such I would remind you that unless there are exceptional circumstances we will not accept another count request for this location or close surrounding area for another 12 months. Community Speed Watch does not operate in any speed limit above 40mph. Any other results in higher speed limits will be discussed on their individual basis and merit.

On the A420 at Prestgrove North Wraxall there are lots of road accidents with wild life and kittens being knocked down and killed as vehicles are driving so fast. There is a 40mph sign post about a mile from her property and she is asking if the sign post could be moved to nearer her property so that they slow down or a separate sign post saying SLOW DOWN
