Update on 20 is Plenty in Wylam
Wylam Road Safety Group is a group of local parents and residents desperate to make our village safer.
The perception of traffic going too fast along the main street from the shops through to and beyond the train station continues. Last Autumn the government recognised that 20mph through residential areas should be encouraged and with this in mind issued new guidelines. There are well known various ‘black spots’ through the village e.g. by the Jubilee park and around the school, so a group of Wylam residents have formed a group focussing on road safety. They are hoping to achieve 20mph around the school and by the Jubilee park if not throughout the whole of Wylam.
Many thanks to all who supported this cause and signed the petition. The petition has now been submitted and a decision will be made at the next West Area Committee meeting in June.
