SPEED SURVEY UPDATE - 3rd Dec 2019
Q. What is the criterion for Notts County Council to install Vehicle Activated Speed Signs?
A - The criterion for consideration for the introduction of Vehicle Activated Speed Signs is that in any 1hr period, for the duration of the monitoring activity; the observed 85th percentile vehicle speed is greater than 'local speed limit + 10% +2mph' AND the flow of traffic is greater than 250 Vehicles per Hour.
Q - What was the result of the last speed survey to be carried out on the Southwell Road entry/exit point to Farnsfield?
A - The last speed survey at the Southwell Road side of the village was carried out in October 2019. Although there was one 1hr period where the recorded 85th percentile speed meet the 85th percentile speed criteria (36.1 mph – southbound), the flow criterion of greater than 250 vehicles per hour was not met. Therefore, Southwell Road, Farnsfield, was not listed for consideration for the introduction of a Vehicle Activated Speed Sign at this time.
