Cofton speed limit delay

Posted on January 19 2012 at 11:09:22

Plans to introduce a 30mph speed limit along Barnt Green Road in Cofton Hackett by the beginning of the New Year have been delayed.

It is believed county highways officers are considering a detailed objection to the plan received from a resident living close to the proposed new zone between Rose Hill island and just past the top of Reservoir Road.

In a letter of objection to the head of legal services at Worcestershire County Council, the resident says the “dangers”  given as the reason for reducing the speed limit are “non-existent”.

He adds: “If there is a danger to persons, existing or potential, this is not due to the road or motor vehicles using it but the locations of ungated access/egress points to/from the Lickey Woods.”
