New measures proposed to slam brakes on speeding motorists in Keighley residential area
12:50pm Friday 6th December 2013 in News
Measures are planned in a Keighley street to slam the brakes on speeding motorists.
Road humps are proposed along a stretch of Spring Gardens Lane.
Bradford Council is advertising details of speed tables and cushions at five locations on the road, which is well used by students walking to and from Holy Family School.
This week, the council’s principal engineer, Keith Escritt, said residents had already been consulted about the scheme.
“We have asked residents for their views about the planned road safety measures and have made some adjustments taking into account the responses received,” he said.
“Traffic calming measures help to reduce speeds and are important to make our roads safer.”
The proposals are welcomed by district councillor, Abid Hussain, whose Keighley Central ward includes Spring Gardens Lane.
“I am very happy with the measures and fully support them,” he said. “They will improve public safety in a road that is very busy, particularly early mornings and later in the afternoon, with young people going to and from the school.”
Plans can be viewed at the customer services reception in Keighley Town Hall. Anyone wishing to object to the scheme should write to the City Solicitor, Bradford Council, City Hall, Bradford BD1 1HY by noon on December 19.
