Eight out of eight bids for highways improvements in Queen Edith’s have made it to the list of funded projects for the coming year – including one which made the top ten for the whole city.
I have been working with local residents to get funding for various small highways schemes, under the County Council’s Local Highways Initiative, which funds schemes up to £10,000. We had to submit the bids last autumn and they were scored by a panel of councillors in January.
A bid for mobile speed signs in Queen Edith’s Way was the top-scoring bid in our area. Many thanks to QEW resident Ken Hart, who put the bid together, and addressed councillors on the day. Speeding is a continual cause of concern in Queen Edith’s Way, especially at the Hills Road end.
The other bids were for parking restrictions, to address concerns raised by residents in many streets:
Many thanks to all the residents who provided evidence for the bids, especially those who attended and spoke at the council meeting.Leave a comment
