Potential changes to the traffic calming on the B5344, Drigg

Concerns have been raised over the effectiveness of the existing speed cushions, while reports of noise pollution have also been received. Cumbria County Council are therefore proposing to remove the existing speed cushions outside of Rose Cottage, and replace them  with a priority give way system.

Please find attached a location plan and drawing detailing the proposed traffic calming changes.

If you have any comments you would like to make regarding the possible changes, please respond by Friday 20th August 2021; labelling your correspondence “Drigg Traffic Calming”.   Any feedback, either in favour or against our suggestions, would be appreciated – respond to  TrafficTeam.West@cumbria.gov.uk
