SPEEDING survey is to be carried after parents’ calls for action over a narrow suburban road.

Police have asked the North Worcestershire Traffic Management Unit to carry out tests after residents complained of speeding cars in Princess Way, on the Walshes estate, Stourport.

The issue was raised at Areley Kings Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meeting.

Local Policing Officer PC Andy Brooks-Davies said: “Residents and parents of pupils at St Bartholomew’s School are obviously concerned but Princess Way is a narrow road and it may be that speeding is perceived as being a greater problem than it actually is.

“We need to establish a true picture. It is only then that we will be able to consider what action, if any, needs to be taken.”

There were also concerns about repeated issues of motor cycles and quad bikes being ridden off-road on an area of open land known as The Snipes and speeding on Dunley Road.

The next PACT meeting takes place at St Bartholomew’s School at 7pm on Monday, March 23.
