petition details

Support for speed humps Racecourse Road Swinton.

We the undersigned petition the council to Support and implement the democratically approved scheme for road humps to be installed on Racecourse Road in Swinton.

Approval was granted on 1st December 2023 by RMBC to install speed humps on Racecourse Road. Due process was followed with full consultation to all residents. The majority of residents supported the much needed scheme and hence approval was granted with work programmed to begin in February. This is now under threat as a petition has been raised by Councillor Lewis Mills (Bramley and Ravenfield) to overturn the decision and stop the proposed works. Residents have been campaigning for years to address the issue of speeding motorists and increase the safety of residents. Past accidents and data recorded, highlight the need for such traffic calming measures.
Due process was followed and full consultation undertaken within the correct timescales. Anyone wishing to object could have done so during this period.
Residents overwhelmingly supported this scheme when consulted showing a real desire for this scheme to go ahead.
We have therefore created a counter petition to ensure that the work proceeds as planned to ensure the safety of the public including local school children walking to and from school daily.

This petition ran from 12/02/2024 to 15/04/2024 and has now finished.
