Reduce traffic speed to legal limit

We the undersigned petition the council to Implement appropriate traffic calming measures on the upper part of Avenell Road, towards its junction with Aubert Park, in order to reduce traffic to the legal speed limit of 20mph.

Since traffic reorganisation along Gillespie Road, there has been a significant rise in through traffic along Avenell Road. As the segment of the road has no traffic calming measures in place, some drivers treat the long, straight section of road as a speedway - very often and very clearly driving at well past the legal speed limit.

A number of pets have been killed on this section of road since the Gillespie Road traffic changes, and it would seem that accidents are more prevalent, too. With a large number of young children living alongside this segment of road, the risk to human life has increased.

This ePetition ran from 03/01/2020 to 31/03/2020 and has now finished.
