You found my new blog - welcome!

I'm County Councillor for 12 villages in the south of Cambridgeshire - Duxford, Fowlmere, Foxton, Great  & Little Chishill, Heydon, Hinxton, Ickleton, Pampisford, Shepreth, Whittlesford and Thriplow.

I also represent the residents of Whittlesford, Heathfield and Thriplow on South Cambridgeshire District Council. Since 2016 I have been leader of South Cambs District Council.

 

Foxton's fastest road? Too fast!

Foxton's fastest road? Too fast!

Talking to people living along the Fowlmere Road in Foxton this afternoon. A lot of concern about the very straight raod that comes into the village and where vehicles just don't slow down. The pavement on one side is very narrow and actually isn't there at all at several points, so children have to keep crossing the road to get to school.

I supported Whittlesford and Ickleton in securing money and support from the county council (under whats known as the minor highways improvement scheme) for traffic slowing measures (see below) and I am sure that the same case can be made for putting in some hard traffic calming along Fowlmere Road here. It certainly works in Newton where the speed bumps outside my front door along Cambridge Road have made it a lot safer!. 

.Sometimes you need the hard traffic calming to have any effect. 

Does Hinxton need : a parish plan or a neighbourhood Plan?..
