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
Chicane / Priority systems
Footpath from Amblers Way to Station
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.
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.
