Easterton horse riders campaign for road signs

9th November 2012 | Warning Signs

Posted by Jason Nicholls

Horse riders from Easterton have called for new warning signs to indicate to motorists when they need to slow down when travelling towards the village.

Speaking to the Gazette and Herald, Carol Street noted that she has experienced a number of close calls when riding through the area, explaining that she recently came close to colliding with a 4x4.

Ms Street is hoping for road signs to be introduced on the approaches to Easterton, but has been informed by Wiltshire Council that the cost of the work will be £564.

"We have already had a lot of support. The British Horse Society is putting £250 towards it and we have had other generous donations, including £50 from the landlord of the Royal Oak," she explained.

Road signs were recently introduced in Bath to alert drivers to 20mph limits in the area, with reporting that Twerton and Southdown are the first two regions to bring in the slower speed zones.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801485154-ADNFCR
