Villagers may have noticed that there are 5 metrocount systems that have been positioned at various points along the B3107 in the village. These were requested by the Parish Council to assess the average speed which can inform future potential traffic calming measures and whether we meet the criteria for community speedwatch or speed indicator devices. The results from the metrocount recently positioned on Melksham Road concluded that neither would be applicable.
Results from the recent MetroCount can be found here
