  • In denial regarding this bump, but I I’ll not spare the time to physically look at it themselves. Typical council, knowing they get away with damaging cars driving at the 20mph limit, and drivers can’t do anything about it.

  • Update for HIR000133 - written 06.08.2018

    The engineer for this particular project confirms that the replacement road hump has been fully designed and constructed to the appropriate Department for Transport standards. The replacement road hump is however a different profile to the other road humps in the area, which have been in place for many years and would have settled due to the passage of traffic during this time.

    Hatch Lane is subject to a 20mph speed limit and the traffic calming features on the road have been introduced in order to encourage drivers to adhere to this speed limit. In the circumstances I can only suggest that drivers drive over the new road hump at a reduced speed, appropriate to this 20mph speed limit.

    State changed to: Fixed

  • The bump has not been fixed, nor have they even looked at it. Taken the advice of someone who will say they made it properly!

  • The advice given is: Don’t use the road or damage your car. Very mature from our counsellors. How shall I get to my house? They’ve now built further bumps that are the same and worse quality.

  • Following an assessment of the road bumps on Hatch Lane last week, maintenance works are being undertaken along the road today.

  • THIS IS NOT FIXED. They have sorted the latest bumps, which were just as bad as the original I was complaining about. The original bump I raised this complaint about has been ignored, and is still damaging cars and bicycles.

  • Hello,

    Following our last update, The speed humps in Hatch Lane have been completely redone on the 3rd of October. Which original speed bump are you referring to? Can you please clarify its location.

    Kind regards. RBWM

  • The one outside the new houses and St. John’s road, which is what I said in the first post, and I made the comment before those others were even built!

  • I will also add that due to all the car parking it is not possible to drive faster than 20mph anyway at this part of the road, so saying drive at the speed limit, when even 10mph is damaging cars, doesn’t really help!

  • Afternoon,

    It has been re-iterated that the traffic calming measures (speed bumps) in St Johns Road and Hatch Lane are all within specifications in relation to current regulations. With regards to the speed limits, it is a maximum speed limit sign. This was there also prior to resurfacing taking place.

    I'm sorry we are unable to help further with this at this time.

    Kind regards,
