Community Speedwatch Training

IMG_1027Following my successful funding of new speed radar equipment before Christmas, we had our second training session in North Bucks this week. Volunteers from Buckingham (thank you to the Neighbourhood Action Group), Akeley and the Claydons were present.

A booking system is being arranged so that trained volunteers can then set up a Speedwatch session in their parish. The funding was arranged via the Buckinghamshire County Council’s Local Area Forum. More details about Speedwatch can be found here: www.transportforbucks.net/Road-Safety/Speed-reduction/Community-speedwatch.aspx

 

Thames Valley Police: Have your say

I was pleased to catch up with two of our local Thames Valley PCSOs in Buckingham town centre on Saturday and discuss the various issues they care currently dealing with. They have monthly updates on the police website where you can check the latest North Bucks issues, and help with any local intelligence: www.thamesvalley.police.uk

Buckingham Pavements

Over the last year I have received many complaints about the metal stud tactile pavement in and around the town centre. After much campaigning with the relevant departments, I am delighted to report that the studs are now removed. The temporary tarmac will be replaced by concrete slabs with tactile texture in the next few weeks.

Select Committee review TfB progress

It is 12 months since the select committee’s inquiry and recommendations into the Transport for Bucks (TfB) contract were agreed by Bucks County Council cabinet, and we undertook our 12 month review of progress. Significant changes have now taken place; with a better resourced client team, a more responsive contractor, and a more rigorous approach to quality and value for money.

You can watch the webcast of the review on the website: www.buckscc.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/152762
