Traffic calming measures such as speed cushions and chicanes are used to control the speed of drivers on roads where a need is identified.
These measures can only be considered where roads have suitable lighting and a speed limit of 30 mph or less.
Improved signage and road markings may be more effective with isolated hazards, for example at a sharp bend or junction.
We will only consider providing traffic calming where it will:
- improve safety in areas where people are being injured because of high traffic speeds
- help to meet the Welsh Government's targets as set out in the Road Safety Framework for Wales
Traffic Regulation Orders
A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is needed for measures that restrict traffic or parking for safety.
