There have been further improvements in road safety in Whickham with the erection of vehicle activated signs (VAS) on Whaggs Lane and Sunniside Road.
The signs were erected as part of the Northumbria Camera Safety Partnership’s enforcement of traffic speed limits and will flash the 30mph roundel when a vehicle is breaking the limit.
Your Councillors have been working with representatives from the Partnership and traffic engineers from Gateshead Council to address speed concerns in Whickham.
“We are very pleased that the signs have been installed,” said Councillor Marilynn Ord. "These signs are part of a variable position scheme i.e the posts will have signs on them for about a quarter of the time, for six week periods.”
