Speeding in Mapplewell

Let’s take action BEFORE there is a serious injury or worse.

We get more calls about road safety on our village roads than for anything else. Our roads are getting busier and traffic is getting faster.
Cllr Steve Hunt has repeatedly taken these inquiries to the Council but so far he is being told that due to limited financial resources action will only be taken where there has been a history of serious incidents.
We find it unacceptable that there would need to be a serious injury or even worse a fatality BEFORE action is taken here in Darton East Ward.

So I am asking you to support this petition which Steve will submit.
This is the best way for us to make progress on road safety in this area. 
It is up to us to get behind this and attract attention to problems in our villages.

We request that Barnsley Council carry out speed surveys on the following roads and then consider options to improve safety:-

  • Spark Lane
  • Carr Green Lane
  • Hill End Road
  • Staincross Common
  • Windhill Lane
  • Paddock Road
  • Darton Lane
  • Bloomhouse Lane
  • Bar Lane
  • Wakefield Road
