Talks are set to take place over speeding measures in Bromley Cross following a series of driving-related incidents.

It comes as Bromley Cross and Egerton had a number of issues reported - the causes of which vary.

Three main points are expected to be discussed at a public meeting today (Thursday September 21).

Ward councillor Cllr Nadim Muslim said: "Point one of our three-point plan to tackle speeding in Bromley Cross and Egerton, was to arrange a public meeting with local councillors, council officers, and police officers.

“And we’re delivering that.

“Tackling speeding isn’t something that one organisation can do alone, so we’re bringing them together.

“This is a great opportunity for local residents to make their voice heard and hear directly from those who can make a difference."

Residents have previously voiced their concerns over speeding in the area, with Hospital Road being of particular concern. 

In the past, Driver Feedback Signs were installed on a number of roads in the ward.

The signs display a driver’s speed to encourage them to slow down, and also collect data on vehicle speeds too.

The meetings will provide an opportunity for residents to directly raise their concerns and hear about solutions.

There will also be an increase in speeding operations, where there will be a higher visibility of police in the area.

Work is also being done with the police to bring Community Speed Watch to the area, so residents and police can work together.

The meeting will take place from 7pm at the community centre on Windsor Road.
