Our second MVAS arrived at the end of September and has been on Haslingfield Road since. Data shows that speeding continues to be an issue with about 38% of vehicles travelling at over 35 mph (speeding ticket threshold). The v85 speed is 40 mph which means that “normal” drivers treat this road as a 40 mph road. Top speed was 77 mph. The MVAS is set up to record speed in both directions and shows that when motorists are approaching the sign (visual display), the speeds are slightly lower than those that are departing and do not see the display.
Barton Parish council would like feedback from residents to see if they would want hardware such as speed cushions and build-outs to physically reduce traffic speed.
Please contact the clerk or Councillor Andy Martin.
