EASTER COMPTON - Proposed Traffic Calming - Consultation 2



Concerns have been raised by members of the public, Parish Councils and local Councillors regarding traffic speeds on the B4055 in Easter Compton, Pilning and in between the two villages. Between the 30th November and 24th December 2018, a consultation took place for proposals in Easter Compton, Pilning and between the 2 villages. These proposals included 20mph Zones with traffic calming in Easter Compton and Pilning and a 40mph speed limit between the two villages.

The proposals received majority support during the initial consultation, however concerns were raised by some members of the public regarding ground borne vibrations caused by traffic calming, especially on alluvium soil (which most of Easter Compton and Pilning is based on). As a result, the Council has decided to replace the majority of speed tables with speed cushions which produce lower levels of vibration. As each set of speed cushions costs less than a speed table, we have the funding to add an extra 4 sets of speed cushions in Easter Compton. The additional speed cushions are subject to the results of this consultation.

Purpose of Scheme

To reduce traffic speeds in and between Easter Compton and Pilning.

Proposed Scheme

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
