33,35,37 & 39 Ivel Road

Reported anonymously at 10:37, Monday 5 July 2021

There are 3 Speed bump / raised access points along Ivel Road that are totally ineffective. Lorries and numerous cars are still regularly speeding as the "humps" are over large and flat and so don't represent an adequate deterrent to vehicles as they should. Residents have to suffer vibration to adjacent property when HGV's speed past (not slowly down). There is also a major noise nuisance problem with speeding cars scrapping their underside sumps on the entry and exit to each hump in turn. The Speed Bumps are totally ineffective to control traffic speed which is a pedestrian safety issue too as the humps are used as crossing points too. An alternative solution might be required such as traffic calming chicane might be more effective. The surface of the humps is also continuing to break up. The problem has got worse recently with the increase in construction traffic to either end of Ivel Road but has existed ever since the Council change the design of humps during the construction of the St Francis Estate (Bovis) developement. Further evidence of vibration damage can be seen by the render cracking to no. 37 Ivel Road (adjacent properties don't have render).
