Traffic signs in Woodlands being ignored

This week, I heard from residents who are concerned about drivers ignoring the one-way system on West Princes Street in Woodlands.

Also, there are reports that the sign prohibiting right hand turns out of Barrington Drive is not being followed.

The Woodlands area is designated a twenty's plenty zone and a restricted parking zone. As a result, it is expected that problems with traffic, parking and speeding would be limited. Further investigation by council officials is needed in to the issues raised by residents . To help ensure that drivers reduce the speed of vehicles, the suggestion that traffic calming is introduced in the area should be considered.

I have flagged up the various traffic issues raised by residents to council officials. Further discussion will take place about enforcement and investment in the Woodlands area.
