Earlier this afternoon I met with Joe Smith, Highways Engineer to look at various problem areas in Moreton. First we looked at the ‘One Way’ signage in Barnston Lane, close to the junction with Netherton Road. The signage is all there, however some of it needs tidying up, Joe has also agreed to install ‘Directional Arrow Road Markings’ in Netherton Road and Barnston Lane, hopefully this will solve the problem of traffic going the wrong way.
Second we looked at suitable locations for a solar powered vehicle activated speed warning sign in Borrowdale/Overchurch Road. After some debate about potential problems, we agreed to install a device on Borrowdale Road, close to the junction with Burrel Drive for a trial period to see what residents think. IF there are no problems it will remain permanently.
Third we looked in Bermuda Road to see if there was a suitable location for another speed indicator device, sadly because of the proximity of the houses there was not a suitable location. However Joe has agreed to provide some ‘Slow Markings’ on the road painted in red. Hopefully that will help.
Finally, as there was not a suitable location in Bermuda Road, it has been agreed to reinstall the speed indicator device, permanently, on Upton Road, close to the junction with Paulsfield Drive.
