Many rural villages feel swamped by speeding traffic. So what is the solution?
I am pleased to see the Parish Council has decided to introduce traffic calming measures to reduce the speed of vehicles entering the residential area of Nocton. This will act as a psychological narrowing of the entrance to the restricted speed zone of 30mph .
This measure now needs to be adopted for Main Street and Potterhanworth Road entrances to complete the village scheme. Our Parish Council should be commended for pursuing such a good initiative, which has the additional benefit of being aesthetically pleasing too.
