Speeding Vehicles in Thorp Arch

Published: 14 Oct 20

The Parish Council continue to be concerned about speeding vehicles in the village. Despite their efforts to slow traffic with the purchase of two speed indication devices (SIDs), speeding remains a problem. Cllr Nicola Midgely has been regularly collating data downloaded from the SIDs. The data provides evidence of the excessive speeds some vehicles travel through the village at. The data shows that there is a significant problem with speeding on Church Causeway with around 80% or more of vehicles speeding. Councillors have written to Leeds City Council Highways department with a view to exploring additional traffic calming measures and improved signage within the Parish. Please see the link to view data tables downloaded from the SIDs. Read More...
