Queen's Park Labour Councillors propose further road safety measures.
Campaigning Labour Councillors, Masud and Yasin, continue their work to introduce new road safety measures throughout Queen’s Park, Bedford.
During the past year the two councillors have used their Ward Fund to secure new parking restrictions on many streets in the area, notably by bringing in double yellow lines on street corners.
Councillor Masud said: “Already the yellow lines have stopped reckless, inconsiderate parking on corners, making the area safer for pedestrians and other road users.”
To further increase road safety in Queen’s Park, Cllrs Masud and Yasin are inviting residents to take part in the three week consultation regarding their proposal for a reduction of the speed limits in some streets from 30mph to 20mph. These include Honey Hill Road, Hurst Grove, Beverley Crescent and Ford End Road.
Councillor Yasin said: “Speeding is a very serious problem in Queen’s Park and we have listened to the concerns expressed by local residents. Consultation has started and residents can contact the council directly or contact us to let us know if they support or object to these measures.”
