Speed bumps on Grange Estate, Ribbleton, Preston

We, the undersigned, petition the county council to put speed bumps around Grange Estate in Ribbleton, Preston.

People speed around the Grange Estate. People have nearly crashed head-on around the bend on Fir Trees Avenue because of the speed they are going. Kids also play on the street.

This ePetition ran from 17/04/2019 to 09/09/2019 and has now finished.

Council response

We do consider that physical traffic calming measures such as road humps and chicanes, can be considered at sites where there is a history of injury collisions which could have been prevented by the presence of these types of feature.

We currently prioritise highway safety schemes at those sites which have very poor casualty records. On the basis of the good accident record on this residential estate, with no recorded incidents involving speeding vehicles over the last 5 years, traffic calming measures cannot be justified at this time.

As such, we would not support the introduction of new speed bumps at present.
