Road Safety Concerns/ Advice

Often physical measures are introduced on the public highway to reduce the speed and / or volume of traffic on a road. This can come in the form of such features as waiting restrictions, traffic signs, speed humps, cushions and tables, chicanes, road narrowing, pedestrian islands, coloured and textures road surfacing.

The council uses traffic survey and accident data, provided by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and Greater Manchester Police (GMP) to help identify sites which may benefit from the introduction of traffic calming features. It also takes into account the type of road and what type of traffic is using it. 

If you would like to get advice about what your community can do to tackle road safety issues, feel free to have a look at:
