Enforce 40mph speed limit on A690 between Brancepeth and Meadowfield

We the undersigned petition the Council to put speed limits in place along the A690 between Brancepeth and Meadowfield. Ideally to provide electronic speed monitoring to notify that drivers are above the speed limit.

Currently the speed limit along this road is 60mph. This limit is inappropriately high and provokes potentially devastating road traffic accidents, such as the one that occurred at the junction leading into Scripton Gill Road yesterday, 15th November 2018. It is about time this road is made safer for commuters and pedestrians, so please put a speed limit in place.

Thank you very much.
