Leicestershire village gets anti-speeding scheme
A scheme to help cut speeding in a Leicestershire village has been completed.
The measures are aimed at reducing traffic speeds along Heather Lane in Normanton le Heath.
The project involved putting in new vehicle-activated signs which flash when triggered by speeding motorists.
Wooden gates have also been added at the village entrances to remind drivers they are within a 30mph (48 km/h) speed limit area.
Lesley Pendleton, county council cabinet member for environment and transport, said: "The local community were very concerned about traffic speeds and successfully secured funding to address this.
"Working together, the parish and county council have delivered a solution that will benefit the people living in the village and especially the school children who cross Heather Lane to get their bus."
