Dudley MP Ian Austin has launched a campaign to stop speeding on the Northway in Sedgley together with local campaigners.
Northway residents contacted Austin to raise concerns about accidents and near misses on the road. They said that cars are regularly breaking the speed limit along the Northway, and residents want to see speeding measures put in place to prevent accidents. They also raised concerns about lorries thundering down the road.
Austin has now launched a survey of local residents together with campaigners to collect evidence on the extent of the problem and find out what residents think should be done about it.
Austin will present the survey to the Council and push for the introduction of speed reduction measures and restrictions on lorries using the road.
Ian Austin said:
“Northway residents have told me that speeding on the road is so bad that near misses happen weekly and accidents are becoming more and more common.
“I’m asking residents if they have noticed speeding and thundering lorries on the Northway, and what they think should be done about it.
“I promise that I will take local residents’ views to local councillors and Dudley Council to get something done before more accidents occur.”
