20mph signage needed

Reported via iOS in the Signs category by Martin Bradfield at 02:24, Mon 14 November 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 378144.

The residential ‘frontage’ section of Hockliffe Road - between the Brooklands Drive traffic lights & the scout hut - is still being used as a cut-through to avoid the traffic lights. This applies in both directions. Many drivers are using excessive speed in rush hours. This section is part of the 20mph residential zone but is often blatantly ignored. This has been reported via email &, whilst initial noises from the Town Council were encouraging, nothing more has been heard. It has been noted that speeds have increased since the recent re-surfacing of the road … so good news for the speeders who previously had to consider the numerous pot-holes. My request is for 20mph ‘reminder’ signage to be applied to the appropriate street lighting. I am prepared to contribute to any costs in an attempt to restore street safety & avoid the obvious risk of personal injury to the various pedestrian school children who use this section of Hockliffe Road en-route to various local schools. Not to mention numerous local residents in the LU73JU postcode when exiting their drives or accessing their vehicles outside their homes. I am hoping this App may be more efficient than previous email correspondence with ward councillors? Thank you.
