Speeding in Peldon

Speeding in Peldon

Two spreadsheets (see below) contain the full details of  results of the official traffic speed survey commissioned by the Parish Council and carried out in St Ives Road and Lower Road, Peldon.  In summary:

St Ives Road – Southbound

With a total of 1,817 cars counted across 7 days the Average Daily Speed was recorded at 29.6mph. This shows good compliance with the 30mph limit and the criteria for a Vehicle Activated Sign (VAS) has not been met.

St Ives Road – Northbound

With a total of 1,841 cars counted across 7 days the Average Daily Speed was recorded at 29.5mph. This also shows very good compliance with the 30mph limit and the criteria for a VAS has not been met.

Lower Road – Eastbound

With a total of 10,173 cars counted across 7 days the Average Daily Speed was recorded at 34.7mph. The criteria for a VAS has not been met. Although 4.7mph over the speed limit this falls 0.3mph short of the criteria needed.

Lower Road – Westbound

With a total of 10,216 cars counted across 7 days the Average Daily Speed was recorded at 36.0mph. The criteria needed for a VAS has been met.

Next Steps

Peldon Parish Councillors will arrange to meet with Highways engineers to ascertain suitable places along Lower Road at which a VAS (Vehicle Activated Sign) could be located to face west-bound traffic.  Following that, Peldon residents will be asked whether they wish to proceed with the installation of a VAS and if so which of the identified locations they would prefer.
