A local resident asked whether the speed bumps will be reinstated on Malpas Road. The official response - received the day before the works are likely to start is below:
"The speed humps in Malpas Road will be replaced when the resurfacing is complete. The original speed humps would have complied with regulations which specify a maximum 100mm height, and the guidance that was in place when they were constructed as to the appropriate height within that maximum figure to be used. However the guidance regarding the appropriate height for physical traffic calming measures (within that maximum figure) is reviewed and amended from time to time and when the Council resurfaces a road containing traffic calming features these are upgraded to comply with current guidance"
