As a result of the recent Street Surgery held, a number of residents raised the issue of speeding vehicles on Church Hill. I asked the Council’s Highways Engineers to carry out a traffic speed assessment and I have now been advised of the results of this. These are set out in the table below. The Highways Officer responsible has commented on them as follows: 

“Clearly, the numbers are very satisfactory, with only a small percentage of traffic exceeding the enforceable limit and the mean speed being 22.2mph. Subsequently, I can propose no further measures at this time.” 

Period Time Volume 85th Percentile     (Max speed at which 85% of vehicles are travelling) at these times Mean Speed
Full 24 hrs 3468 28.2 mph 22.2 mph
Peak 8am 272 33.2 mph 26.5 mph
Peak 4pm 293 29.4 mph 24.1 mph

If you would like a copy of the full 24 hour data sheet please let me know.
