Speeding issues in Lumby and South Milford

May 24, 2017

Following the horrific accident in Lumby last week when a resident was involved and sustained very serious injuries ,requests have been made by residents   to ask  NYCC Highways  and  the Police to address these  speeding issues  in this hot spot for speeding before another accident happens.

 

Residents in Lumby have previously  campaigned  for  traffic calming measures through the village  as they   felt  this type of accident was  waiting to happen.  Unfortunatly there have now  been 2 accidents in the last 6 months involving vehicles  passing through Lumby .

 

The speeding  problem in Lumby has been exacerbated since the development in Sherburn  with increasing numbers of vehicles cutting through Lumby at speed  on single track roads to avoid the A63/162 traffic build up at Battersby roundabout  . 

 

In addition to Lumby , the speeding hotspots in South Milford which have also been raised by residents - Lund Syke Lane and Low Street also need to be addressed .

We have campaigned for improvements  to the pedestrian crossing on Low Street but  have been advised by NYCC that the  present  crossing meets the required standard and the  improvements we requested  are therefore  not necessary  . 

 

We have  raised these  with Mel Hobson -  NYCC Cllr  , who is keen to take these issues forward  on our behalf with both NY Highways and the Police  to see what can be done .

Mel is already  involved in Community Speed watch in Sherburn  and has  agreed to extend the  coverage to Lumby and South Milford  to help address  speeding across the Parish .

I have also requested that in view of this recent very serious accident NYCC  seriously consider installing   some traffic calming measures in our speeding hotspots .

We are working with Cllr Mel Hobson on this and will keep you updated.
