Chock Lane Traffic-calming Chicanes

The installation of three traffic-calming chicanes in Chock Lane has recently been completed and this represents the culmination of a long drawn-out campaign by the NP3 Transport Working Group to support local residents in achieving a reduction in traffic speed through this rather narrow thoroughfare. 

Chock Lane Chicanes (4A)Post-installation passive speed counts indicate that, over the course of a week, 99% of the vehicles did not exceed 21mph at the exit from the chicanes. This figure should be compared with those previously recorded during local Community SpeedWatch exercises which typically indicated that up to 40% of vehicles were travelling at between 20 and 24mph (and typically 10% in excess of 24mph).
