Bill Cash seeks A519 speed reduction to 40mph on behalf of Slindon residents

Press release 05/08/09       

Yesterday, Bill Cash MP went to Slindon to meet local residents who are rightly concerned about the speed of vehicles as they travel through Slindon. There is, at present, a 50mph limit – but with the aid of hand cameras and personal observations, it is clear that people travel at speed of over 70mph, regularly causing severe danger to those who live in the village and there have been a number of accidents lately.
 
Cash is taking the matter up with Staffordshire County Council in detail and seeking a reduction in the speed limit to 40mph, and that measures are taken to enforce this limit in the interests of the safety of Slindon residents. Cash has asked Staffordshire County Council for full consultation with the objectors as soon as possible.
