Speeding vehicles due to lack of speed limit signs or traffic calming

We live on Red Hill in Camerton and cars regularly speed down the hill. We have a young family and are very concerned about their safety. We also see parents and children walking up and down the hill to the catch the bus or walk to Timsbury to school. There lack of pavement exacerbates the speeding hazard. There have been 3 crashes within the past 3-4 months at the same point. The speed limit is 30mph, however there aren’t any speed limit signs between Meadgate and our house (6 Red Hill). There is one painted sign on the road. According to the Highway Code there needs to be 30mph repeater signs, but there aren’t any! Drivers need more information (40mph repeaters), a speeding deterrent (speed camera) and/or traffic calming measures. There is also a desperate need for a pavement so children can walk to school safely!!
