SPEEDING in Charford has been mitigated thanks to key changes implemented over the last 18 months.
County councillor Kyle Daisley has overseen a reduce in the speed limit along Charford Road to 20mph and speed bumps installed.
With the speed limit on part of Lyttleton Avenue also reduced, all roads outside of Charford’s three schools are now permanent 20mph zones.
The Conservative councillor was also involved in securing pedestrian crossing outside of South Bromsgrove High School.
“When I was elected, I promised I would deal with these issues and that is exactly what I have done,” he said.
“These are major steps to combating road traffic problems but I want to assure residents it does not end here – this is just the start.”
District councillor for Charford, Michael Thompson, heaped praise on his colleague following the safety improvements.
“What Kyle and I have shown, is that when politicians come together to work with local communities we can make real change,” he said.
“Look at what a community can do when it works with – and not against – its residents.
“Road safety improvements, crackdown on county lines, investment in electric buses, money for community projects, assistance with housing, improvements to playgrounds, CCTV on the brink of being rolled out…the list is long and, moreover, will continue to grow.”
