I politely put in a request for a speed study on Carlisle road between the turn off right from Chapeltown onto Carlisle road for the road leading up to station street.
Despite the warnings of 20miles per hour, the cars/lorries/vans are not adhering to this and regularly speed over 30 miles per hour. This is more evident between 7-9am &4-6PM, 7 days a week. Also, although the vehicles slow down to the lollipop lady for Greenside school Monday-Friday they are also speeding up both leading and leaving this point. Both with the result of over 30 miles an hour. This has been more evident over the last year with the new builds being built opposite.
I believe a request for speed bumps to be installed at 2 points at the top of Carlisle road off from Chapeltown road and the point leading up to the turn off onto station street would be advisable for both safety of adults but also the increased presence of school children.
Safety is of great importance and if even more evident with big lorries taking the shortcut through this road.
