Traffic (Speed) Surveys
A report on a meeting with Cllr M Hart and P Green from Worcestershire County Council had been circulated called to consider the results of recent volume and speed surveys undertaken by the Safer Roads Partnership (part of West Mercia Police), taken over a 7 day period commencing on 11 September 2019.LocationTotal Volume Vehicles*Speed LimitMean Speed85%tileRedcross1240750mph44mph50.9mph15% exceeding 51mphBrockencote1241730mph35.1 mph40.4 mph15% exceeding 40mphSchool 1252530mph36.8 mph44.3 mph15% exceeding 44mph(foot of Lodgeford Hill)Clattercut1208660mph41.6 mph48.3 mph15% exceeding 48mph(top of Lodgeford Hill)* Vehicle movements recorded in both directionsOutcomeRedcross – Results indicate that the speed limit is being adhered to in the 50mph and the national speed limit areas. The SRP will not enforce unless above 57 mph. Therefore no action can be taken at this time. Highways had previously considered removing the overtaking lines at this location, but this had been rejected.30 mph areas- It was agreed that speeds within the 30mph areas are too high. The SRP will not take speed enforcement action until the statutory highways authority (WCC) have done all of the engineering measures they reasonably can to try to reduce speeds.Brockencote– White village gateways are in the process of being installed at the start of the 30mph limit. New 30mph signage with yellow backing behind it will be installed as you enter the 30 mph speed limit and some new bend warning signage. White ‘tiger teeth’ markings will be added to the road before the 30 mph sign. It was agreed to contribute £1,000 towards the cost signage improvements, which was match funded by Cllr Marcus Hart.Near the School – White gates are already installed. White ‘tigers teeth’ signs will also be added at this location. Highways will look into the possibility of removing the overtaking lines from Clattercut Lane to the School. Additional signage near entrance to school will be considered.50/60 mph areas near Clattercut Lane– A speed limit review will be undertaken from Bromsgrove to Mustow Green which will require a full statutory consultation and will take approximately 12 months.
As part of this process we will shortly be Mailing a RESIDENTS’ SURVEY to every household in the parish. The survey form can be completed and returned in the envelope provided, or on-line. There will be a separate on-line survey for children and for businesses. Other adults in the household can also make an on-line return.There is a 20th November deadline for their submission.
