Overview

We are writing to seek your view on the Council’s proposal to make a number of changes in order to reduce drivers’ speed and enhance road safety on Maygrove Road.

This follows concerns raised by the MILAM Residents Association regarding road safety and more specifically about drivers developing speeds in excess of the existing 20 mph speed limit on Maygrove Road near the junction with Ariel Road.

There are traffic calming measures in place along Maygrove Road; these include round top humps as well as flat top road humps at junctions (also known as “raised tables”). These measures are spaced every 50 to 76m, with the exception of the section near junction with Ariel Road, where the distance between the humps is approximately 200m.

To address the issue, the Council is proposing the following which is also shown on the plan:

  • Build an additional traffic calming measure in the form of a “raised table” at the junction of Maygrove Road and Ariel Road.

Existing parking provision will not be affected by the above proposed measures. Finally, we would like to make you aware that the above proposals are short-term measures to address the road safety concerns in that particular section of Maygrove Road; longer-term measures are being considered too to better manage traffic levels on Maygrove Road. In the following questionnaire you will have an opportunity to provide any concerns as well as comments and suggestions for these longer-term measures. Any further proposals will be brought forward separately as part of future consultations.
