Evidence is being gathered on speeding and traffic along Daventry’s Ashby Road.

Last month the Daventry Express reported that Northamptonshire County Council were going to take steps to try and solve the problems on the road, following an approach by Cllr Chris Long.

Signs banning HGVs from the road have already gone up and sensors have been installed to look at the speed of traffic.

Cllr Long said: “The erection of the ‘local traffic only’ signs, while far from being a solution, do, I believe indicate a genuine desire to address the problems of this road once and for all.”

A new crossing has also been approved for Northern Way for people walking between Ashby Road and Drayton Park and Middlemore.

The crossing will now be reviewed by the road safety and safer route to schools team before funding is sought.
