Longley Road traffic calming at last!

Longley Rd is in Almondbury in address terms but politically in the Newsome Ward. It's a long straight road and as a result not short of speeding traffic. Newsome Green Party Cllrs approved the traffic calming for this stretch of road using our limited Ward budgets four years ago. What has taken so much time has been ongoing pressure on Kirklees Highways staff. Highways Engineers can command higher salaries outside financially hard pressed local Councils with limited budgets and so we seem to have lost Project Management for the scheme on a number of occasions. We had to but a bit more pressure on than usual to finally get the scheme off the ground. This is a good win if hard won!
