Electronic warning signs could be brought to a busy road in Congleton in an attempt to stop motorists from speeding.

Congleton Town Council is currently in negotiations with Cheshire East Council and the Congleton Local Area Partnership as a means of hopefully installing electronic flashing signage on Leek Road, reports the Sentinel.

Congleton town clerk Brian Hogan told the news provider: "A suggested solution was to install a refuge in the middle of the road to narrow the lane and slow down traffic, however, highways engineers have said the road is too narrow."

The attempts to secure safety signage follow a study of vehicles on the road, which found that 3,280 road users were travelling above the speed limit.

New road signs may also arrive in Derby, as the Derbyshire Times has reported that parents are urging for them to be fitted outside of Newbold Parish Church Pre-school, amid parents' worries over child safety on the road.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801299171-ADNFCR
