Traffic calming measures needed on New Mills Road, Hayfield
An increasing number of vehicles are not stopping or slowing down for pedestrians at the zebra crossing on New Mills Road. Traffic from both directions - the bypass & New Mills travel at excessive speed on the stretch of road from the Kinder Lodge to Hallams Garage and as a result are unable to slow down or stop at the zebra crossing in time. The zebra crossing is invaluable for residents on Chapel Rd/MeadowsRd and Ridge Top Lane, as well as for parents and children using Blue Grass Purple Cow Nursery and worshippers of St John’s Church.
A zebra crossing is no longer sufficient in keeping pedestrians safe on this road and further traffic calming measures are needed.
