Road safety measures for 'hazardous St Ann's Road'
The next meeting of the Area 6 Committee which covers The Dales, St Ann's & Mapperley wards will meet on Tuesday to discuss a number of topics.
Councillors will receive a copy of the Mapperley Ward Executive Summery which indicates that In November 2012 (compared to November 2011) there has been a reduction in all crime of 14.91% in the region. It also says that in November 2012 (compared to November 2011) all Antisocial Behaviour in Mapperley was down by 49.35%.
There is also to be a 'Week of Action' in St Ann's shortly. Work is already underway with residents living on Cromer Road, Ransom Rd and Chandos Street.
St Ann's councillors Dave Liversidge & Jon Collins have implemented a road safety review of Beacon Hill Rise Road & Stonebridge Road, in order to introduce measures to cut down on the number of double-parked cars, and speeding vehicles.

Beacon Hill Rise Road has become a race track during the hours of darkness due to the absence of raised humps in the road to slow traffic down, while the street lighting along these roads is poor and inefficient.
Councillor Dave Liversidge said today "We are very hopeful & determined to put new traffic calming measures in place in the interest of the safety of local residents, and we will have a chance to discuss this subject at our next area meeting."
With all of the street lighting in the vicinity is due to be replaced in August this year, councillors hope to find money from the Capital fund & other sources to put new traffic calming measures in place as soon as practical.
