Motion: Councillor D. Smith “That this Committee provide traffic calming measures in the Castleview Estate in particular on Castleview Avenue.”

Report: The speeding issue has been identified as being along Castleview Avenue, the main access route through Castleview. Other roads within the Castleview housing development contain low radii bends to discourage speeding. Traffic-calming ramps are typically installed on the main access roads into large residential estates and particularly on residential roads which are destination routes, through routes or ‘rat-runs’. Given that Castleview Avenue is primarily used by residents this location would not be considered a high priority for the provision of traffic calming ramps due to the road layout and the gradients in some locations.
