Keeping our roads safe

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Following a recent increase in the number of road safety related enquiries to her constituency office, local MP Meg Munn met Stuart Walne, Chief Inspector at South Yorkshire police, to discuss how they could strengthen the work they do together to keep Sheffield’s roads safe.

Top of the agenda following the tragic death of Meg’s constituent, Jasmyn Chan, was the situation of speeding around Normanton Hill. Meg is pleased that following representations from a wide variety of people the city council has announced it will be putting a controlled pedestrian crossing in the area.

Stuart advised Meg that following Jasmyn’s death the police and council worked together to install a hard standing opposite the park entrance, to enable them to use a mobile speed camera at the site. They are also investigating whether it will be possible to move the bus stop to a different location, and chop back or move the bushes along the park edge that restrict the light from the street lamps.

Meg also discussed with the Chief Inspector the proposals to introduce a ‘managed motorway’ scheme, between Junctions 32 and 35a of the M1. Both Meg and Stuart have both publicly expressed opposition to this plan, and Stuart advised Meg of recent accidents that have occurred on similar schemes. He also highlighted flaws with the technology the Highways Agency intends to use, and explained potential difficulties with enforcement.

Meg said:

“It was useful to touch base with Stuart and discuss what have been a worrying few months in road safety terms. As an MP it is important that I liaise with both the police and the local community to ensure that we keep our roads safe.”
