Campaign to Make Our Roads Safer

NPC is once again holding discussions with ERYC Officers to see if any measures can be put in place to make Newbald’s roads safer.

In particular, NPC is concerned at the number of drivers who speed along Burgate. This happens both ways and represents a very real danger to residents. Where Burgate meets the diagonal road across The Green, there is a blind corner, which members feel is an accident waiting to happen. Ideally the road across The Green should be shut and converted to grass but this has been ruled out in the past due to the very high costs of doing so.

Measures that will be discussed include speed bumps and chicanes.
