May 2017 - Walker Motoring concerns

What you told us:                                           

Concern regarding the excessive speeds of motor vehicles on roads governed by 20 mph speed     restrictions and indiscriminate and inconsiderate parking on the school run continue to affect        residents of the Walker and Walkergate Wards.                                                


What we are doing about it:                       

These concerns are reported via local residents meetings and through Ward Councillors.

As a result Neighbourhood Officers will continue to monitor traffic and use technical equipment to identify those drivers travelling in excess of the speed restrictions.


Indiscriminate or inconsiderate parking during the school run places children at risk and Neighbourhood Officers will continue to monitor the roads outside our schools with a view to increasing awareness and addressing poor driving.
