In a move to encourage drivers to reduce speed on Little Wittenham Road, the Parish Council has installed a pair of white ‘gates’ next to the 30mph signs. It is hoped that they will remind drivers that they are entering a village environment and make them slow down.
At the November meeting of the council several residents living on or near the road voiced their concerns about speeding vehicles. They said that since the Coronavirus lockdown measures were imposed, traffic on the road has significantly increased.
The gates were suggested by the County Council Road Safety Officer. Thanks to Councillor Steve Brown for his work on the project.
