Elmfield Road traffic calming scheme
After a series of high-speed collisions, plans have been put into place to introduce traffic calming on the approach to the
bend on Elmfield Rd.
After research by PCC Highways contractor, Milestone, it has been agreed with Park and Dogsthorpe ward councillors to install speed cushions on the approach to the bend in each direction.
The cushions, along with road markings, will be clearly visible to drivers. Their purpose is to encourage safe driving to or below the 30mph speed limit on this increasingly busy stretch of road.
The scheme is funded by PCC along with contributions from the Community Leadership funds from the six councilors representing Park and Dogsthorpe wards. It is anticipated that the work will be completed by March 2024.
In a joint statement issued by councilors, they are delighted that the scheme is going ahead thanks to cooperation between the councilors and in agreement with residents in both wards.
“This is a perfect example of cross-party working and cooperation between councilors of different political persuasions in Park and Dogsthorpe to address an issue that has caused a great deal of anxiety among those residents affected by reckless driving on Elmfield Rd”.
