Temporary Road Safety Posters in Green Lane

The Road Safety Unit has been erecting temporary road safety posters to lamp columns across the borough for a number of years as part of their road safety campaigns. The posters usually stay in place for three months.

These have been as a short term low cost intervention and we are advised that they have had a positive effect on driver and rider behaviour. The posters about speeding usually decrease speed by around 2mph which as a non-engineering scheme makes it both cost effective and encouraging. After three months road users get used to the posters and the benefit lessens, so at that point they get moved on.

Although the posters are erected as temporary road signs, they may be left in place for longer periods of time if they are required.

Unless there is a strong reason not to have these installed in Penge by Green Lane the process to erect them starts on Tuesday 18th November 2014. Please let us have your views.
