• Speed management measures in Christchurch:

Two injury accidents have happened in the last three years, but the scheme could be funded by development in the area.
• Earth bund and sign improvements at the A141 in Wimblington at its junction with Manea Road:
Wimblington Parish Council raised concerns about the number of injury accidents at the junction and has bid through the scheme to build a bund to prevent vehicles ploughing into the nearby Thomas Eaton Primary School field.
There have been two injury accidents in the last three years, one of which was serious, and the scheme is supported by the area traffic engineer.
• Speed cushions along Clarkson Avenue, Wisbech:
Wisbech Town Council has called for further speed cushions in addition to the existing road humps. There have been no injury accidents along the road in the last three years, but the scheme is supported by the area traffic engineer.
