MARCH: Reader pleased to see something has been done over the issue of speeding in Upwell Road
AS a nearby resident of Upwell Road, I completely agree with the county council s decision to implement speed reduction adaptations where they have. This is a busy junction which is used on a daily basis by parents taking and picking up their young child

Surely the objective of speed reducing measures is to reduce speed in the area where it is most needed? The location chosen for the placement of the traffic calming is ideal and very well situated, any further away from a built up area would only succeed in reducing traffic speed before entering a national speed limit zone therefore serving no purpose.
Regarding the noise of lorries passing over the bumps, these are designed so that emergency vehicles and larger ones such as lorries can pass over them either side and thus it is driver error that is causing the noise - something no council cannot legislate for."
I for one am pleased to see that something has been done to tackle this as for too long speeding has been an issue in Upwell Road.
