    At the Chester Moor PACT on Wednesday 18th April it was agreed to keep the current priority regarding speeding vehicles on the A167.

     

This is what we have done

  • 14 November 2018 - Chester South (Garden Farm Estate)
     
    From recent checks we have done on Waldridge Road between the two roundabouts, the enforcement team were out from 8/10/2018 to 22/10/2018 and the following results: -

    3 Drivers were given traffic offence orders, 10 were given verbal warnings about their anti-social tendencies to speed, 1 vehicle was seized for no insurance and 1 driver was issued with a 183 notice for anti-social driving.
    Speed Watch completed on Monday 10th September at Waldridge Road, 33 vehicles passed
    17 were 30 or less
    7 were between 31 and 34 mph
    9 were over 35 mph

    At Warkworth Drive 20 vehicles passed
    6 were 20 or less.
    8 were between 21 and 23 mph
    6 were 24 mph.
    Whitehill Way has been subject to a speed enforcement campaign by Roads Policing Unit which has resulted in the following:

    1 driver reported for Court action
    40 drivers issued with a Traffic Offence Report
    15 drivers verbally warned with regard to their anti-social tendencies to speed.
    1 vehicle seized no insurance
    1 vehicle no insurance
    1 vehicle defect

    As such the road will continue to be periodically targeted by RPU for speed enforcement attention
     
    Speed-watch on Thursday 12th July on Waldridge Lane: -
    50 vehicles passed.
    28 were 30 mph or less
    13 were between 31 and 34 mph
    9 were over 35 mph. This will go further to the road policing unit.
    Also completed on Warkworth Drive which is a 20 mph road: -
    25 vehicles passed
    8 were 20 mph or less
    4 were between 21 and 24 mph
    13 were over 24 mph.
    Speed-watch completed on Monday 11/6/2018 on Whitehill Way
    50 vehicles passed   30 were 30 mph or less
    11 were between 31 and 34 mph
    9 were over 35 mph. this is 18 % so is a speeding area and will get looked at as a high priority and passed on to the road policing unit for more action.
     
    Community speed watch on Friday 18th May at Waldridge Lane opposite Lesbury Close the results are as follows.
    50 vehicles passed 26 were 30 mph or less
    9 were between 31 and 34 mph
    15 were over 35 mph, so this will go for further action by the road policing unit.
     
    A speed survey as requested from Chester Moor PACT meeting, at the times that were requested on the 20 mph road from Waldridge Lane roundabout to the dead end at the A 167.
    This does not include vehicles coming or leaving the first entrance on the left as it is too close to the roundabout to record. The data below is accurate as was carried out by the speed laser gun, I have put the data into small speed groups to give a better understanding of the speeds. This data is combined for both the different times and includes vehicles going in both directions.

    35 vehicles recorded
    10 were 20 mph or less
    6 were doing 21 to 22 mph
    3 were doing 23 to 24 mph
    16 were over 25 mph.

    This report is not a police report but an independent Community Speed Watch persons report. There is a problem with speed on the lane, the lane is straight and wide with no traffic calming measures in place which gives way for vehicles to travel faster than the advisory 20 limit.
     
    Tuesday 17th April Community Speed Watch on Warkworth Drive in both directions. The data is as follows.
      
    Travelling south, 20 vehicles passed
    7 were 20 mph or less
    9 were between 21 and 24 mph
    6 were over 25 mph.
     
    Travelling north 20 vehicles passed
    10 were 20 mph or less
    6 were between 21 and 24 mph
    4 were over 25 mph.
     
    C91 Waldridge Road, Chester-le-Street, Nr Lesbury Close
    This was targeted by Roads Policing Unit 26/02/18 to 28/03/18.
    During the numerous visits to site 6 drivers were issued with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR) and 10 drivers were verbally warned.
