Residents in Derwent Road approached Councillor Peter Diplock recently to ask for help with traffic on their street.
Meads County councillor candidate Peter discovered that HGVs were attempting to deliver to the shops on Meads Street using Derwent Road as a short-cut, even though the road isn’t designed to accommodate vehicles of this size.
Peter said, "Having harried the County Council, I finally received a reply. The Council has conceded that there needs to be an investigation by a Traffic Safety Officer with a view to installing signage preventing HGVs using the road."
Small victories that will hopefully make a big difference to residents!
