Plans for new road humps in Blackburn to go ahead

First published in News

TRAFFIC calming measures in Laburnum Road, Little Harwood, are set to go ahead despite concerns from residents.

Blackburn with Darwen Council’s planning and highways committee is set to confirm the scheme despite householders worries about the siting of road humps.

One resident was concerned that the proposed ‘sleeping policemen’ designed to slow down drivers in the new 20mph zone would be inconvenient.

However another homeowner, in the road objected to his alternative proposals for the humps.

Officials also warned councillors that changing the proposals would substantially add to the scheme costs.

They are recommending the committee to authorise the original plan for the road humps.

The traffic calming scheme is necessary because of additional traffic from a new housing development at the end of Laburnum Road.
