for speeding crackdown along Love Lane in Burnham-On-Sea
Town councillors are calling for a clampdown on speeding along
a popular Burnham-On-Sea commuter route.
increasing traffic speeds between the town's Tesco roundabout
and Burnham hospital are making Love Lane so dangerous that it
is just time before an accident occurs, they say.
at the latest town council meeting, several members called on
Somerset County Council to enforce the 30mph speed limit along
the road and consider other methods to ensure the law is not broken.
David Poole said the speed of traffic along Love Lane has been
"absolutely horrendous" during recent weeks.
and time again we've taken this back to the County Council but
have not got any action," he said. "Before
long something terrible will happen."
town Mayor Cllr Louise Parkin added her backing to the calls for
change, saying she "wholeheartedly agrees" with Cllr
been talking about Love Lane for 5-6 years. There is nothing we
can do but write letters to the County Council."
Planning Committee Chairman Peter Clayton asked: "How many
have to die before we get this road onto the priority list?"
council has pledged to take up the issue with the County Council
once again to push for action.
