Great news for residents!
The 30mph speed limit extension on Ringwood Road, Ferndown will go “live” and be enforceable from Friday 20 September 2019.
This means that the 30mph speed limit, at its western point, will now start by the lay-by at the otherside of the Angel Inn towards Haskins garden Centre.
The schedule of works is:
- 2 September – The two sign posts required for the two new lit terminal signs will beinstalled (the plates either be left off or bagged over until 20th September).
- 10th – 13th September – Trenching and cable works for the new lit terminal signs.
- 20th September – Removal of existing lit terminal signs and new speed plates in situ.
- The sign shop staff at Dorset Council will be removing the 40mph repeater signs that are no longer required and also erecting two new camera/30mph warning signs.
Eventually, budgets permitting, it is hoped to extend the zone to the mini-roundabouts.
Nevertheless this is a great start.
Thanks are due not only to those residents that campaigned for the change and to the Councillors that supported it but also importantly to the Highways Department for listening, doing the research and finding the budget to implement it.
