Issue Summary

Speeding concern on Pearce Way Bishopdown


Latest Update

16/04/2018 21:17:31 issue being investigated by officers

CATG Action / Recommendation


Pearce Way used to be the main road to access Bishopdown Farm Housing estate and had a 40mph limit. Since David Wilson Barratt Homes starting building completed the Riverdown Park development we have noticed a significant increase in traffic. The limit has been reduced to 30 mph. 90 of traffic seem to transit this road in excess of 40mph and on occasions greater up to an estimated 60 mph. At the end of the road sits the pedestrian traffic entering and exiting the Greentrees School. The excess speed now puts the children at risk and something need to be done to reduce the risk as the current traffic calming measures are inadequate and needs to improve to keep the traffic at 30mph.
