The Parish Council have been trying to reduce speeding in Backwell and traffic calming measures (including a 20mph speed limit) are being installed into Station Road at present. In addition we have had a "Vehicle Activated Sign" in Rodney Road for a few weeks. On 28 August 2018 the sign was moved to Dark Lane where, as well as warning drivers, it will generate data on speeding both before and after the start of the school term. We expect the sign to be there for 2-3 weeks. Information obtained from the sign and its possible location later in the year will be presented at the next Full Council Meeting.
