Priestfield Road traffic calming

Residents and users of Priestfield Road should look out for notification of proposals for some traffic calming in the next few days.  Leaflets to homes will be delivered and street notices will be put up. The proposals will also soon be available at the Edinburgh Council consultation page on its website.

Council statistics show there have been three injury collisions in the last three years compared to none in the previous ten years.   That increase has been accompanied by increasing pressure from local residents for measures to slow traffic which, according to speed surveys, has shown a marked increase in speed.

I understand the proposals are for 11 x 75mm full width road humps over the full length of Priestfield Road.
