Traffic Calming Update
Parish Councillors recently met up with a representative of the Northants Highways Team. Traffic calming on the A508 was discussed and a scheme has been agreed for implementation by April 2017. (Work programme and weather permitting)
The work will include new ‘gateways’ at the 40 mph entry points, pedestrian refuge to aid crossing and additional signage (including new white lining) in key locations. A further speed survey will be carried out after scheme completion to measure its impact. There is unlikely to be any long term major disruption during the work although traffic controls will be in place when the refuge is constructed. The Parish Council is pleased to be able to progress this scheme and will continue to work with partners to slow the traffic down to acceptable levels on the A508. The Parish Council will notify you when a start date for the work is announced.

The trees along the A508 are being cut back as part of the NCC maintenance programme. The Parish Council has arranged for the bus shelters to be cleared as well. The street lights that are out were reported to our contractor ‘Eon’ for repair. Upon investigation, this was down to a power failure and Western Power are working to restore the lights. Western Power have been chased up for early action and will fix by Monday 19th December.
