New 40mph speed limit zone

Ramper RdThe Parish Council has been successful in its Local Highway Initiative bid to Cambs County Council to change the speed limit along a section of Ramper Rd between the village boundary and the double bends, from 60mph to 40mph.  The change was requested to bring vehicle speeds down for traffic travelling towards the village to ensure speeds are then brought down to 30mph as vehicles enter the built up area of Ramper Road.  Also to keep vehicle speed down to 40mph for traffic leaving the village travelling towards the double-bends, where often vehicles end up in the roadside ditches.  The speed reduction package will include rumble strips, 3-2-1 countdown signs and additional road markings.  Also requested were additional advance warning signs for the sharp bend at Uttons Drove junction, to try to reduce the amount of vehicles which take this corner too fast and end up in the roadside ditch.  The measures will be implemented later this year.
