MARCH: It has become like a racetrack

ELWYN Road is not a race-track. It is a residential road, and the speed limit is 30mph. Please spare a thought for the people who live in this road, and have to park their cars (yes, parking is legal on BOTH sides), cross the road, and put up with the extra noise when someone decides to test their turbo, down our street.
Double glazing cuts out normal engine noise, but not high revs.
With the current diversion in force, Elwyn Road is now not only being treated as race-track, it is also doubling as a busy high street.
We therefore have now, not only those who race their cars at 40-50mph as a matter of course, but also those doing so out of frustration at the diversion.

Please, spare a thought for the residents who live here. We will need to park, pull out, occasionally cross the road, and yes, we also live and sleep here.
There are children living here too.

Revving of engines, unnecessary acceleration, and general bad-tempered driving, is really damaging the quality of life here at present.
I would also request that once these diversions are finished, can those who do not really save any time by using our road as a 'cut-through', go back to their normal route up the High Street? It really was busy enough, to start with.
And yes, the speed limit is 'THIRTY'- for a reason- SAFETY.
