We have received a Notice from the Borough Council of a proposed road closure. It will affect Bratton Road on 13th August and is assumed to last for one day. A diversion route is offered .
The Speed Indicator Device owned by the Parish Council and purchased after securing funding from the police Commissioners Office has been in Wrockwardine for some time We now have six "sockets" around the Parish that allow the "SID" to be moved around.
When a vehicle approaches the SID, and is exceeding the speed limit, the sign will be lit with a sign confirming the 30MPH limit.
We expect this reminder will help drivers be aware of their speed and be more considerate when passing through our villages.
More importantly, the SID records the number of vehicles which break the speed limit over a period. This data are what will be used to assist in creating our future traffic management policies.
