Speed Free Lockleaze!

ACORN Lockleaze members and residents are concerned for the safety of our community.

Speeding is a huge issue that affects the whole of Lockleaze. The area is used as a cut through, it's a rat run, and because the roads are straight and long it makes it easy for cars to drive at speed. The speeding vans put out by local police don't work and as they are ...

Speeding is a huge issue that affects the whole of Lockleaze. The area is used as a cut through, it's a rat run, and because the roads are straight and long it makes it easy for cars to drive at speed. The speeding vans put out by local police don't work and as they are only out in the day they don't penalise the speeding that happens late into the night. 

This issue is increasing in severity following a recent surge in accidents, and it will keep getting worse as the new developments will increase the traffic to the area.

That's why ACORN Lockleaze members are taking action, starting with this petition. We will not wait for causilties to occur before Bristol City Council and the Highways Authority take our concerns seriously!

Dear Bristol City Council and Highways Authority,

ACORN Lockleaze members demand that this issue is addressed by experts and planners at Bristol City Council and th Highways Authority. By signing this petition I support their demands in calling for:

-A meeting with decision makers, highway experts and planners, so that residents and members can air their concerns and help shape a long-term strategic plan to combat speeding in a way that benefits the local area.

- For *some form of traffic calming measures* to be implemented across Lockleaze, paid for by the Community Infrastructure Levy and other contributions from developers, prioritising the roads that are notorious for speeding.

- To protect the bus gate between Lockleaze and Cheswick Village.
