High Interest in Traffic

Council News

More than 60 people attended the Traffic Calming poster presentation at the Pavilion on Wednesday 19th August 2020. Several schemes with associated costs were shown. For example, 20 mph zones, road narrowing, pollution monitoring and buffer zones. Viewers were given feed back forms to fill in to enable Barton Parish Council to judge which schemes were deemed more important to the village as a whole. Also views were requested on how best to fund these options including private funding.

Given that the weather was not brilliant on Wednesday, the high turn out and engaging discussions show the level of importance Barton residents put on improving the traffic situation in order to make our village a pleasant, safe and healthy place to live.
