Traffic Speed through the Village

29 Aug 2012
By David Balston

We have now received the results of the survey of traffic speed which was carried out between 1st and 9th May 2012. Two monitors were set up; one outside Orchard House and the other at the exit of the Reading Room car park.

Orchard House: 12203 vehicles of which 85% were less than 34.4 mph.

Reading Room: 13976 vehicles of which 85% were less than 32.9 mph.

These results mean that no further action will be taken as the threshold for such action is 85% at or below 35 mph. A request for a speed indicator device will be considered by the Community Area Transport Group and recommendations made to the Salisbury Area Board.
