Issue Summary

Move 30mph sign further out of village on C189

 

Latest Update

30/11/2018 11:51:27 This Issue was discussed at the CATG meeting on 20 09 2018. Local Wiltshire Councillor described how the situation at the edge of the village has changed since the speed limit was put in, with more properties further out. Drivers now enter the village at higher speeds. He mentioned that horses and riders often cross this road. The Highways Engineer said that moving the sign further back is a possibility but that it would need a speed limit review to do this. This costs a flat rate of £2.5k. The Engineer will look up the older speed limit review and find out how this new work can be progressed. This can be discussed further at the next CATG meeting on 13 12 2018.


10/09/2018 14:53:50 This was discussed at the CATG meeting of 21 06 18. The Highways Engineer has looked at the situation and feels that the 30mph sign can be moved but not as far as originally requested. There was discussion about where this new location could be. Before any work can take place, this project will need to be given a high priority by the CATG. There was no priority given on 21 06 18. It will remain on the agenda for the next CATG meeting on 20 09 18.

Issue

Request to move the 30mph limit further out to beyond the urban area at the top of Oxford Street Road into Aldbourne Road. Properties beyond the current limit are increasingly finding it dangerous to pull out onto the road due to the speed of vehicles passing their properties. Also horses are have to be walked across the road between two areas of Baydon Hill Farm and it is very dangerous for the workers and horses during this process. All these issues are within an area that has a national speed limit. If the 30mph limit was moved further out it would offer great protection for the properties in that area. The council has recently purchased two SIDs and one could be placed at this location if the limit was moved further out.

Who is Affected

Residents living outside the current 30mph limit. As well as those just inside the current limit as many vehicles do not slow until they are well into the current 30mph limit.

What has been done so far

Spoken to local councillor.

What would resolve issue

The 30mph limit moved out beyond Baydon Farm to where the current Aldbourne Please drive carefully sign is.

Who needs to come together

Aldbourne Parish Council, Wiltshire Council and possibly Baydon Parish Council who are also trying to get the 30mph limit moved further out at the other end of the Aldbourne Road. Costs could be shared if the two Parish Councils were able to work together.
