FURTHER traffic calming measures are set to be introduced in Bishop’s Tachbrook.
Warwickshire County Council is moving the start of the 30mph limit and new ‘build out’ bumps will be created on Mallory Road, just before the junction with Seven Acre Close.
Priority ‘give way’ signs will be added along with improved lighting on the outskirts of the village.
The £70,000 scheme is being funded by Warwick-based developer A C Lloyd as part of its construction of 50 homes in the area.
Warwick District Council leader and Bishop’s Tachbrook ward councillor Andrew Day said: “This welcome investment will help keep our growing community safer. AC Lloyd has worked well with our residents to reduce the impact that the traffic from these new homes will have on the safety of our village roads.
“The road schemes that they are funding will help most motorists to do the right thing, benefitting all residents and our community life.”
The parish council has supported the plans, saying some motorists enter the area driving too fast from Banbury Road.
Council vice chairman Leigh Carter said: “Construction of the new scheme is eagerly anticipated by residents as speeding through this part of Bishop’s Tachbrook has been a long-standing source of anxiety.”
