Speed bump is not big enough to slow traffic

Reported in the Damaged Speed Humps category anonymously at 13:36, Thursday 6 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2233447.

I understand you are about to re do the road and I spoke to one of your men who work for you and he said you are just going to put the same speed hump down when I frankly think this is not going to slow the traffic all night me and all my neighbours hear is scraping of cars or just speed down the road as the cars nowadays are wider. There are many children who live down church st near the public gardens and I’d like to think you could change this to 1. Slow the vehicles down. 2. And to stop the constant scraping of cars.

  • Thank you for your query to Northamptonshire County Council’s Street Doctor service with regard to the forthcoming surfacing works on Church Street, Moulton. The current guidance on specifications for road humps / cushions is for a height not exceeding 75mm so the replacement cushion will be constructed to this specification. This specification gives a compromise of reducing vehicle speeds whilst minimising any noise and vibration issues to nearby properties or damage to low slung vehicles.
