Northumberland County Council is pursuing a new traffic calming and speed reduction scheme for Lowick.
The first is a 20mph zone to protect the school during the time when children are going and coming to and from school.
A scheme to slow traffic down by a chicane each end of the village is being actively pursued, with a £1000 contribution from our County Councillor. The documents are available on the Parish Council website. The WEST CHICANE, will be between the Vicarage and Western House, just before Eelwell Road. The EAST CHICANE would be outside the Village Hall.
The Chicane forces traffic entering the village to slow down as it approaches the village, and gives priority to those leaving. It is a common feature of many villages in Northumberland today.
