Yarmouth Road Speed Repeater Roundels

Residents of Upper Melton Terrace attended the Planning & Transport meeting on the 7th September to express their concerns about speeding traffic on Yarmouth Road. I have been in contact with Highways and the police safety camera team to share their concerns.

A speed survey was carried out by the police in October and the results below show that it meets the criteria to become an enforcement site.

SCC Highways have proposed that 5 x 30mph roundels could be painted on Yarmouth Road to remind users of the existing speed restriction (see appendix A). The estimated cost is around £1,100 which covers the health and safety documentation, traffic management, the installation costs including drying of the road and VAT.  Residents of Upper Melton Terrace have been notified of this proposal and support has been received from three households already.


Members are asked to:

  • Note and comment on the report
  • Agree if they wish to proceed with instructing Highways to paint 5 speed repeater roundels on Yarmouth Road to be funded from CIL.
