Yesterday I visited Raynville Road to see for myself the road traffic issues raised by local residents. It was clear, even in the middle of the day and with poor visibility caused by the lashing rain, that there is a serious problem with speeding.
When drawing up plans for traffic calming measures the council understandably rely upon data – but this is sometimes limited and may not tell the whole story.
If you live on or near Raynville Road, please complete this survey so I have a clearer picture of the issues on this busy road: https://forms.gle/usJKshcRTi1bYMZYA
If you have local friends who do not have access to the internet please encourage them to ring 0113 2552311 with any concerns they may have.
Finally, please make sure you report any accidents or near misses as this data is passed to the council and forms part of their decision making process. Non-emergency incidents, anti-social or dangerous driving and near misses can be reported to 101 – please include as much detail as possible.
