A campaign by residents in Braithwell to tackle speeding traffic through their village, has led to a victory, following the support of MP Caroline Flint. The Council has agreed to cut the speed limit on Ashton Lane, from 60mph to 40mph, to slow traffic coming into Braithwell.
Said Caroline: "The Council's decision to cut the speed limit on Ashton Lane is very welcome. I am grateful to Braithwell resident Arnold Pawson who raised his concerns about traffic speed on Ashton Lane at one of my surgeries. His concerns were widely shared, resulting in a residents’ petition. Since then, I have been pressing Doncaster MBC to reduce the speed limit, supported by the Parish Council, councillors and the police inspector. This is a welcome step to make Braithwell's road safer."
