Call for action on busy road

December 21 2018

A PETITION has been launched calling for a review of traffic calming measures in a busy road in Staple Hill.

Acacia Road links Staple Hill with the Hillfields estate and is also used as a through route by drivers heading between Downend, Fishponds, Kingswood and beyond.

Ward councillor Ian Boulton has submitted the online petition to South Gloucestershire Council and said that, “after a series of road traffic accidents in recent months, we are now asking local residents to support our efforts by signing this petition”.

A council spokesman said four reported injury accidents on the road in the past five years was “not an unusually high number for this type of busy road that has a number of junctions”.
