Road safety improvements

Requests for improvements in your area

We have a limited amount of funding to develop local transport improvements and we need to ensure that we target our resources to those schemes which will be of greatest benefit to our local communities.

We have developed an evidence-based process that enables us to prioritise the numerous requests we receive for traffic calming and other road improvements (such as pedestrian crossings, traffic signals, mini roundabouts and junction improvements). This process determines which schemes should be funded through our capital programme for local transport improvements.

Of those schemes that are put through our scoring process, only about 1 in 20 requests are taken forward for further consideration.
