Rushing troubles in Pinchbeck Highway in Spalding have been lifted as an ‘accident ready to happen’.
Spalding and Peterborough Transport Forum members reported that cars and trucks on a regular basis split the 30mph limit – and are often seen overtaking.
At Saturday’s meeting, Stuart Blessett said: “We just can’t believe that the velocity that the motorists go down here. In terms of a developed up spot I have in no way witnessed speeding like it.”
Ben Sear mentioned traveling to pace cameras have missed the worst of the problem.
He mentioned: “They’re by no means there at 6 or 7 in the early morning – or six or 7 at evening when the actually nuts things occurs.”
Forum chairman George Scott reported: “We are just waiting for an incident to happen – we have to do anything about dashing.”
Val Gemmell spelled out how people in Fleet had been in a position to get the proof collectively to minimize speed limitations.
Sir John Hayes claimed the answer could appear from a mix of pace reductions and variations to highway layouts and markings, which can improve driver conduct – and urged the forum to glance at the proof from the likes of Weston and Sutton St James.
He mentioned: “We do know that there have been successes – we have obtained to look at how all those successes happened, where they occurred and see what can be replicated.”
The forum also agreed to seem at the risk of putting a yellow box in at the junction of West Elloe Avenue and Pinchbeck Street to deter motorists from blocking it up.
The forum will also glance at ways to be part of up the biking route from Spalding to Pinchbeck – and will check out Pedals’ eyesight for better cycling.
It will also glimpse into the footpath alongside Cowbit Highway which has been closed for a long even though.
Final yr county council bosses say they could not justify paying £250,000 restoring it.
