LETTER: Traffic calming

Your letters

Signs have now gone up indicating that Durrington Hill, the main road linking Durrington and the A27, is to be closed from October 30 for a whopping six weeks with diversions in place.

Given that surrounding roads are already plagued with speeding traffic, and that the residents’ campaign for inclusion in the traffic calming works was rejected, it seems incredibly insensitive that they are now expected to endure six weeks of traffic misery.

I have said before that if nothing is done to stop speeding traffic in the roads surrounding Durrington Hill there will be an accident and someone will be hurt – these works seem to make that even more likely.

What safeguards are to be put in place to ensure residents’ safety is not put at risk?
