A parish councillor has shared his concerns about the importance of introducing safety traffic measures to one of the main routes through the village.
Aldenham Parish councillor Przemek De Skuba believes anti-speeding measures should be installed due to the ever-growing increase of traffic and speeding drivers near and around local schools.
Cllr De Skuba has approached Herts County Council about installing a speed camera or zebra crossing on Shenley Hill, near the junction with Williams Way and The Avenue and on the junction of Craigweil Avenue with Newberries Avenue, to prevent a serious accident in the future.
He said: “I have been lobbying our county council for slowing down or controlling the traffic on one of the main routes used by Newberries Primary School pupils, as well as older students who use the buses to get to their secondary schools.
“This road (Shenley Hill) suffers from a particularly high level of traffic and number of speeding drivers.
“I have also suggested a zebra crossing on the junction of Craigweil Avenue with Newberries Avenue. Again, cars tend to speed up and down, particularly in the mornings when the kids go to school, and there also is no zebra crossing anywhere on the road.”
The concerned councillor wants to reach out to readers of the magazine to share their views on the matter.
He said: “I would like to reach out to the readers of RadlettNews, particularly those who live in the proximity of Shenley Hill and Craigweil Avenue, and in particular those whose kids attend Newberries Primary School and the secondary schools which are serviced by buses stopping on Shenley Hill, to invite them to share their views on the idea of traffic control I set out above. I believe that this form of public debate may be beneficial to this idea.”
