MAKE OUR STREETS SAFER
Residents of North Town and other visitors to Staplegrove Road, especially those with young children or children attending North Town Primary School or the local home education group and older people are deeply concerned about speeding along the road which is compromising their safety and wellbeing. Since 2010 there have been four crashes at the bend just after French Weir Avenue and local drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians fear future fatalities if firm action is not taken.
