MORE action to tackle speeding in Bramhope is planned for next year.

Ward and parish councillors have been working on the issue with residents and PC Karina Ingham throughout 2017.

A range of safety measures have been introduced over the past 12 months, including:

*Installation of anti-skid surfacing at the A660's junction with Church Hill and Old Lane's junction with Occupation Lane

*Speed bumps installed on Moor Road and a Speed Indication Device (SID) on Kings Road

*Increased police checks.

While those actions have helped, Councillor Billy Flynn (Con, Adel & Wharfedale) says there is still a 'persistent problem' with speeding, particularly on Moor Road, Old Lane and Otley Old Road.

He said: "We have introduced a range of measures in the last two years to address the number one concern of residents.

"But a persistent minority of selfish or unthinking road users still disregard the speed limits and endanger others.

"So further action is imperative."It’s time to put a stop to excessive speed in built up areas."

Earlier in December Cllr Flynn and Bramhope & Carlton Parish Council's Chair and Clerk, Simon Cooper and Nicola Woodward, joined a Highways officer on Moor Road and Old Lane.

Targeted speed surveys are to be carried out on both roads, along with Otley Old Road, to identify specific problem areas.

Once that work is completed discussions about potential additional traffic calming measures - which could include more SIDs, improved signage and the extension of 30mph limits - will be held.
