Poster campaign in Guyhirn calls for reduced speed limit through village
POSTERS calling for reduced speed limits in Guyhirn will soon be appearing throughout the village.
Campaigners will also be handing over a petition at the next meeting of Fenland Traffic Management Area Joint Committee to ask for support.
The campaigners want a 30mph speed limit imposed throughout most of the village and a 20mph limit outside the primary school, village hall and playing field.
Distribution of the posters coincides with National Road Safety Week organised by the charity ‘BRAKE’. Its theme for this year is ‘Kids Say Slow Down’.
Members of Fenland Rural Road Safety Action Network (FRRSAN), including chairman Gavin Booth, are pictured at the latest campaign meeting, with Emma and Jessica Goode, two of the youngsters involved in the Young People Guyhirn speeding project DVD in 2008.

The FRRSAN is also supporting calls for remedial action to be taken at Swan Bridge, Parson Drove, recently the site of another serious accident. Options for road safety improvements at Swan Bridge and at two other locations in Fenland are due to be considered at a Cambridgeshire County Council meeting in December.
