I share the view that traffic through Coton has increased in speed and number over recent years (see Coton Community News June-July 2010) and I’m grateful to those people who have already come forward to describe the hot spots they have identified in the village. Please let me know of any concerns you have on traffic in Coton, either through this website, or through the Parish clerk.
If you have suggestions of what we could do to improve road safety, please let me know. Granchester has recently installled electronic vehicle-activated signs (pictured). What do you think of these? Mirrors at blind corners? Speed humps? Chicanes? More obvious signage at the entrances to the village? A pedestrian crossing over Brook Lane? A pavement on the Recreation Ground side of Brook Lane? All thes have been suggested when I’ve asked people around the village.
Some options are summarised at http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/transport/trafficmanagement/policy/speed_reduction_measures.htm.
On the other hand, if you feel there are no particular problems, please also give your view. It’s important that the Council hears from as many people as possible.
