The Parish Council commissioned and funded a speed traffic data survey having been advised that no data existed for the Finningham Road approach to the village.
The original survey was compromised due to damage to the strips across the road so was repeated in April 2021. Locations selected were outside the Blue Boar on The Street and on the Finningham Road approach just inside the 30pmh limit. The choice of locations is limited by a number of factors including the fact that the equipment has to be tethered and needs to be placed to record movements relatively free of areas that cause slowing.
The second survey was done as lockdown was eased and traffic had picked up and also outside of half term dates. The data is still being analysed but unfortunately, on first sight, it does not appear to provide a great deal of support for the reports of widespread speeding violations.
