Community Speed Watch comes to our Village

Those of you driving into or out of the village on Wrexham Road, may have noticed some figures dressed in High Visibility Jackets, with clipboards and a Speed Indicator Device (SID)
These individuals are part of a recently formed Residents Community Speed Watch Group.

This initiative is the first step in response to the results of a traffic survey carried out last October and concerns raised by residents about speeding on Church Street and Wrexham Road.

The traffic survey indicated that some 71% of the 2000 vehicles per day using Wrexham Road were travelling over the 30 MPH speed limit.
6 vehicles were actually recorded as travelling over 50 MPH, with the overall average speed tending to be higher for drivers leaving the village.

The lower part of Wrexham Road does not have the feel of an urban environment and many of the drivers exceeding the limits can be identified as local people.
We would ask all drivers to respect the speed limits when in the village confines.

If you have concerns about speeding, you can sign up to the Road Safe Pledge and join the Community Speed Watch Group.
