Worksop residents angered by lack of safety signs

A group of Worksop residents who signed a petition for the installation of traffic calming measures and safety signs to reduce traffic problems on Priorswell Road have been angered by the council's work.

Nottingham County Council dropped two kerbs either side of the road close to the popular Canch play area, which residents believe will have no affect on traffic issues.

County councillor for Worksop West Kevin Greaves said the council had promised it would install a "build out" - reducing traffic to a single line of vehicles.

"What they have done is completely inadequate to our requirements and keeping children safe," he told the Dinnington Guardian.

He went on to explain that he thought the measures were a work in progress, before noting that warning signs have not been erected, signifying the presence of children in the area.

More than 500 people signed a petition emphasising the need for crossings and warning signs to prevent drivers from speeding.

A Nottingham County Council spokesman said: "Development of potential traffic calming at this location continues as such measures require a more detailed design and consultation process."ADNFCR-2754-ID-801401239-ADNFCR
