Safer Streets Campaign success

Speed bumps have arrived on Albert Road and the 20mph signs are on their way! Regular readers may recall a year or so ago when Cllr Dawson and I launched a campaign to secure more 20 mph zones in Morley. Figures from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents show that there is a substantial reduction in deaths and serious injury in 20mph zones. Over the last year or so, hundreds of local people have given their support to the campaign.

It’s great news, and a victory for all those who backed the campaign, that the speed bumps are now being installed and news from the Council is that the signs are on their way.

Slower traffic will make a particular difference for parents and children travelling to and from Seven Hills and Morley Newland Primary Schools. The new 20mph zone should make our streets safer for children to play outside and walk to school.

Thank you to everyone who backed the campaign. Anyone else who wants to back our safer streets campaign should get in touch: ed@edballs.com / 0113 253 9466.
