Leicester City Council uses RediPave Traffic Islands and a Combination Table to Reduce Speeds
Lomond Crescent in Leicester is a residential cut-through road that speeding drivers often exploit, it is one-way with a steep gradient and 20mph speed limit. The location has a history of accidents, particularly on the sharp bend making the properties vulnerable.
Leicester City Council wanted a swift solution and chose to install our rubber surface mounted products to combat speeding drivers on this road. A 75mm high Combination Table was installed by Rediweld and featured our 1 metre wide RediPave Traffic Island modules to form the sides of the table. Leicester City Council provided the Tarmac infill.
We were having problems with vehicles travelling down a steep hill at inappropriate speeds. Some were then losing control on a bend and crashing through a fence into the garden of a residential property. To try and stop this happening we decided to install a road hump to slow vehicles down. A Combination Table with RediPave Traffic Islands at the side to narrow the carriageway was chosen as a solution. This cut costs and meant we could install the scheme quickly and with minimal disruption to traffic.
As a result of implementing the scheme, traffic has slowed and residents feel safer. In addition, the road is now open to two-way traffic, making it easier for residents to reach their homes.
