Speed bumps or other traffic calming request
Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 13:08, Wed 14 August 2019
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1731930.
I am writing to enquire whether it would be possible for the council to install speed bumps or other traffic calming measures along Prince Rupert Avenue in Desborough? I ask because although the road is a 20mph zone we frequently see vehicles speeding past our house doing more than three times this speed.
My concern is that we have a young daughter who is a toddler so doesn't yet have any concept of road safety and although we're very careful when outside the house she can now outrun my wife who has mobility problems due to spina bifida so I fear that should my daughter get onto the road, speeding drivers would not be able to react quickly enough to avoid an accident.
Thank you for reporting a fault on the highway. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.
