Speed hump plans for busy Wisbech road

More news, no ads


Residents have just over a week left to comment on plans to instal speed bumps on a busy Wisbech road.

Cambridgeshire Highways have written to those living on an around the Tinkers Drove area to inform them of plans to instal four pairs of speed cushions along it.

The letter explains the humps will be laid at 95m, 168m, 225m and 363m north of Tinkers Drove's junction with Lynn Road.

People have until January 15 to comment on plans to instal speed humps along Tinkers Drove. (54043297)

However, residents have taken to Facebook to suggest the road could do with resurfacing and potholes filling rather than speed humps.

One person posted: "What's wrong with people? The road needs maintenance not speed humps."

And he continued: "I don't mind if they fix the road and then place the speed bumps, but now I don't really see the point as all the road is like a speed bump."

Another agreed stating: "You're correct in what you've said, they need to resurface before considering putting bumps in."

While another was concerned about potential damage to cars driving over them and said: "You just get told there going in and wasting tax payers' money and make it dangerous for road users. It can do damage to your vehicle like ball-joints, wishbones, tyres and slippery roads can throw your car out of balance not to mention police cars going flat out over them.

"Imagine a police car in pursuit of a car chase hits one of them and gets thrown into someone’s house ."

For those wishing to object the deadline is Friday January 15 and objections to the proposal, together with the grounds on which they are made or any additional comments, must be sent in writing by email to policyandregulation@cambridgeshire.gov.uk quoting reference PR0754. Comments will be used as part of the highways consultation process and may be published, anonymised, in reports to committees.
