Acomb Labour councillor presents resident petition

A local ward councillor has presented a resident petition to the council’s transport boss in a bid to get action taken on a residential street.
 
Residents in Cranbrook Road are concerned at the incidence of speeding vehicles using the street as a rat run to avoid queuing and traffic lights on other nearby main roads.
 
Acomb Labour councillor Stuart Barnes presented a residents’ petition to Coun. Ian Gillies, Executive Member for Transport and Planning, calling for an assessment of safety on the street in light of the problems residents are reporting.
 
He said:
 
“This petition, signed by over 200 local people, is a response to changes over time in driving behaviour that residents now witness regularly in Cranbrook Road.  The use of the street as a rat run and the speeds people are driving suggests these are many drivers who are keen to get places in a hurry, but this is having a negative impact on those that live there.  I’ve been impressed by the way residents have got together to seek action themselves through both this petition and by submitting evidence to the road safety partnership, 95 Alive.
 
“I look forward to this issue being carefully considered by the Executive Member and residents gaining a positive response”.
