Campaigners had claimed that traffic calming measures near the school in Sandpits Road, in Ludlow had actually helped speed up traffic rather than slow it down.

A scheme to add five pairs of speed cushions has recently been drawn up and Shropshire Council is seeking the views of the public.

A pair of speed cushions is proposed at five locations on Sandpits Road, with each one being between 65 - 75mm high, be 2 – 3m in length, and 1.6m to 2m in width).

The consultation began on November 24 and will continue until December 15.
