Issue Summary

Priority signs on Semington Road Berryfield


Latest Update

10/09/2018 12:11:49 Notes from CATG - 21st June 2018 Highways to inspect the lines to see if they meet the intervention levels and report back.

CATG Action / Recommendation


Residents have reported to the Parish Council on numerous occasions that there have been near misses and vehicles mounting the pavementroad kerb stones at the road calming chicanes in Semington Road Berryfield. Vehicular priority is indicated via road markings only and the Parish Council consider that this is not explicit enough for drivers and that vertical signs indicating priority are required. Residents report that this road has become a rat run with drivers using it as a short cut to avoid queuing on the A350. With the development of 150 new homes and a new village hall on land to the East of Semington Road now at Reserved Matters this will only increase the volume of traffic using this road.
