Bramley blackspot: Public meeting will debate traffic calming


A public meeting will be held in Bramley to discuss the need for traffic calming at a notorious junction blackspot.

Residents are becoming increasingly concerned about speeding traffic on Victoria Park Avenue, at the junction with Lancastre Grove following a number of collisions and near misses in the area.

The Dispatch reported on a ‘significant’ collision involving two vehicles last week – with one car narrowly missing children on their way to school.

Resident Paul Chatterton has now called a public meeting aimed at creating some positive solutions to traffic calming in the area.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, 4 October, 7.30 PM at Lilac Grove common house.

Mr Chatterton told The Dispatch:

“The cars missed our children and several others on their way to school by 10 metres. We are deeply shocked.

“This is the second time in three years that the same kind of incident has occurred at the same junction. The last one destroyed our wall.

“Surely now is the time to act before there is a fatality?”

Armley ward councillor Alison Lowe (Lab) said she had reported the latest accident and has asked highways chiefs for a long-term solution to the problems.







  1. Wish they’d look into traffic calming on Westover Road – the number of idiots speeding up there at all times of day and night is crazy!
