Traffic Calming


Traffic Calming Measures

The Parish Council have applied for funding via the Buckinghamshire Council Community Boards for a feasibility study / traffic calming measures (our application is still pending). We provided a wish list which consisted of:

· Traffic signs: Pedestrians in Road and 30mph repeater signs
· Gateway signage: We already have gates – price for new signs
· Coloured road surfacing with the word SLOW
· Chicane / Priority systems
· Road narrowing
· Footpath from Amblers Way to Station Road junction

What can be achieved depends on a number of factors, one of which is funding as costs for traffic calming measures have to be paid by the Parish Council. Unfortunately our application via the HS2 Road Safety Fund was unsuccessful.

Buckinghamshire Council appointed a new contractor from April 2023 and they have now produced a new guide to problem solving and support for highways and road safety.

Speed Indication Displays

We have three speed indication displays fitted at the entrances to the village which belong to the Parish Council. The signs themselves can be relocated to pre-approved positions along Main Street. Data collected from these signs are forwarded to Thames Valley Police which has resulted in a police speed van being placed on the A413 on regular occasions.
