Why do you feel this way?
• Area will be made safer for all road users
• Traffic calming is necessary
Overall, how do you feel about the proposed scheme?
Would you like to see this scheme progressed?
• Area will not be made safer for all road users
• General environment will not be improved
• Traffic calming is not necessary
Do you have any other comments?
Speed bumps are not the answer. Council will waste money installing them only to remove them later as has happened in other areas of South Tyneside. Speed bumps do ruin the suspension on cars no matter how slow you go over them.
In an investigation to road safety the UK government found road humps are unsafe, a noise nuisance and that they create pollution due to vehicles slowing down and speeding up between bumps. They therefore concluded they should NOT be installed and alternative measures should be used. Why not look it up before proposing non workable ideas.
With the current pollution situation should STC not be looking at reducing pollution not increasing it.
Why not make the area residents acces only, with the usual caveats for delivery etc.
Why are ST labour council going against government advice when humps will have to be removed in the near future.
If STC feel the need to install road humps put them in a needed location I.e new road where the school children run riot on push bikes at home time every day. This area needs addressing yet it is ignored.
STC claim they have figures to show speed and accidents on this road but do not publish them. Is that because the data can be used both ways, for and against.
This council and its planners need to remember they are in position to serve all the people in the Brough and not the other way round.
What is the next plan, employ people with red flags to walk in front of all cars and have max speeds of 3 mph or do we all use horse and cart.
This scheme is against current government advice
