09/01/2019 - Speed limit reduced to 50mph on part of the A606 ref: 10025    Recommendations Approved

As part of the rural routes initiative, all County roads assigned as national speed limit have been reviewed to identify those with an accident rate higher than the national average. Those that are shown to have the worst collision history are being put forward for a reduced speed limit of 50mph.

Following this review, a section of the length of road known as Nottingham Road, Ab Kettleby and Melton Road, Broughton and Old Dalby (the A606) was identified as having a total number of accidents significantly above the national average.
To assist in increasing general safety and to help reduce the accident rate, it was proposed to reduce the speed limit on this road to 50mph.

04/01/2019 - Extension to exisiting waiting restrictions & implementation of an advisory H-bar on Range Road, Ashy de la Zouch ref: 10021    Recommendations Approved

The proposed scheme is part of a new commercial development off Range Road and the developer has requested an advisory H-Bar (protective entrance marking) to be implemented across the new access ways of the properties fronting on to Range Road. As a further consideration, to mitigate the impact of potentially obstructive on-street parking and to benefit safety for all road users in this location, officers proposed to formalise the existing school 'keep clear' marking outside Ashby School. The proposed marking will be enforced by a camera car.
