Traffic issues in Wraxall in Failand could soon be improved.

Both North Somerset Council and Wraxall and Failand Parish Council have agreed for speed limits on Beggar Bush Lane and Belmont Hill in Failand to be reduced.

MORE: Speeding remains in villages despite limits falling.

David Bailey, the North Somerset Council’s senior engineer for highways and transport, is preparing a scheme of proposals which could solve the problems, including reintroducing vehicle-activated speeding signs to both villages.

Flashing school warning signs could also be reinstalled near Wraxall Primary School, in Bristol Road, which has been known for dangerous parking and speeding for a number of years.

MORE: Council pleads for traffic calming methods before housing development.

The parish council will be asked to contribute towards the costs involved.

A second site meeting has also been arranged with North Somerset Council’s drainage engineer over drainage problems in Wraxall, as puddles regularly form, which can affect road conditions.
