I’m Rachel Burgess, and I’m here on Keephatch Road in Norreys.
This is just one of the roads about which residents have raised concerns with me relating to traffic speeds, causing a potential danger to pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.
The Council have recently announced a review of speed limits across Wokingham borough
and you are able to contribute. If there are roads where you believe speeds are excessive
you can let the Council know, and nominate these roads for a speed review.
Quite rightly, residents often raise traffic speed concerns with me. They know that numerous
people are killed on UK roads every day and many more are seriously injured. And speed is
often a big factor.
With the massive level of recent housing development in Wokingham it is vital that we
control speed on our roads for the safety of the whole community, so I hope you will take this
opportunity to comment.
To have your say, contact the Council by email to TM.Consultations@wokingham.gov.uk, clearly identifying ‘SPEED REVIEW’ and the roads affected in the title. The results will be published in the autumn.
