Parish to push for traffic calming
North Mymms Parish Council is asking Hertfordshire Highways to help calm traffic along two of the parish’s speeding black spots, Dixons Hill Road in Welham Green and Bluebridge Road in Brookmans Park.
A letter is being sent requesting a meeting to try to come up with solutions aimed at encouraging drivers to cut their speed.
Two years ago the North Mymms Parish Council made an approach to Hertfordshire Highways about traffic congestion around Bradmore Green. The new one-way system is the result of that action.
Bluebridge is already on Hertfordshire County Council's traffic management priority list as a result of a petition of local residents in 2000, complaining about persistent speeding. Dixons Hill Road used to have chicanes to calm traffic, but they were removed because they were seen as more likely to cause accidents than prevent them.
The residents of Bluebrige Road are still waiting for something to be done. North Mymms Parish Council hopes the proposed meeting will push the issue one step further and result in action being taken.
What would be the best traffic calming measures for Dixons Hill Road and Bluebridge Road? You can make suggestions and discuss this issue in this site's forum.
