The latest from the County Council is the sad news that the scheme for chicanes at the limits of an expanded 20mph zone are unlikely to be put in. The Council has a new architect, and is cutting back its spending on such schemes, focusing, as our County Councillor, Colin Hardy, says “only on 20mph zones round schools”. As one Lowick councillor observed, “It’s lucky we have our own mobile chicanes, in the shape of parked cars.”
It is still not known when the safety zones will be installed. A meeting with the new architect is promised.
Meanwhile, our safety cameras are fully operational, reports Cllr Hanson, with full data recording and reporting available from both signs.
