Tunstall (Road Calming)

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

There is a rat run in my constituency, between the A249 Stockbury roundabout and Tunstall village, which is a lovely old Saxon village. Some years ago, I think that the Daleks ordered a softening of the road system, but not in the most difficult part of the village. The residents of Tunstall, the church and the school have a pretty tough time. What we want is a proper road-calming system for the village of Tunstall. The petition states:

The Petition of the Residents of Tunstall

Declares that the road between Tunstall Church and Tunstall School Car Park is dangerous.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Secretary of State for Transport to reduce the speed limit to 20 mph, to provide a traffic control point at the narrowest point in the road and to ban lorries from using the road except for access.

And the Petitioner remains, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
