Speed signs aim to make South Shields safer
Posted by Ben Alexander
A busy road in South Tyneside is set to benefit from new warning signs in a bid to slow down traffic.
Two vehicle-activated notices have been recommended for Marsden Road in South Shields as a method of advising motorists to decrease their speed, reports the Shields Gazette.
Patrick Melia, the local council's corporate director of business and area management, has written a report on the matter.
It reads: "These signs are considered to be a more effective way of informing drivers of actual traffic speeds and are more reliable than the current solar-powered units which flash the speed limit only."
Over the last three years, four people have been injured on the road, which connects Horsley Hill to Harton Village.
Recently, Cambridge-News reported that the north of Cambridge is to have a 20mph speed limit.
Arbury, King's Hedges and the two Chesterton wards gave been selected for the work.
