Nettleham Parish Council Actively Try To Improve Traffic Situation

Nettleham Parish Council have been actively trying to improve the traffic situation within the parish. Written representations have been made to the Lincolnshire County Council, Highways Department for the speed restriction on Deepdale Lane to be extended to the verge of the Enterprise Park. Unfortunately these have not met with a positive response and further representations are being made by the Parish Council.

Concerns about speeding have led to the Parish Council agreeing to contribute (along with other parishes) to a mobile speed indicating device of the type seen on the edge of many rural villages. The board will be deployed in the village from time to time by the police, and it is hoped that this immediate reminder to motorists of their speed will mitigate to some extent the speeding problems which are all too regular.

The Parish Council are aware that the inclement winter weather has affected road surfaces around the village. Lincolnshire County Council, Highways have told the council they will repair as quickly as possible problem pot holes. The number to ring at the County Council is 01522 782070 or you can call the Parish Office on 01522 750011 and the council’s staff will pass it on.

Finally, the Council was disappointed that Lincolnshire County Council, Highways Department painted the standard wide yellow lines within our conservation area, when they should have been narrower and paler lines in ‘heritage lemon’. The County Council have stated that nothing can now be done to reduce the impact of the lines.
