Cemetery Road Speed Measures
Work is now almost complete on a £195,000 scheme, which has been part funded by Sustran, to stop drivers speeding along one of Scunthorpes straightest stretches of road. The major road safety improvement scheme along the entire length of the town's Cemetery Road will see a 20mph zone introduced for the first time.
To prevent motorists breaking the law, the road has been raised to the same level as the pavement at Cemetery Road's junction with Hampton Road and anther is planned for the junction with East Common Lane. There are also raised pedestrian crossing outside the main entrance to the Brumby Engineering College and horizontal and vertical traffic-calming features, including a chicane and speed cushions further along the road.
Local residents are reported as saying they are fed up with taxis racing each other late at night and boy racers early in the morning often at 60mph to 70mph in a 30mph zone. These new speed measures should help combat that and it's hoped the improvements will make a real difference and help drive speed down.
