Traffic in Belthorn
Traffic through Belthorn is an on-going concern for villagers so although I have deleted the text about the major hold ups through the village, which has been available on the site for over two years, I have kept these photos in the hope that our campaign - fronted by Councillor Peter Britcliffe, Leader of Hyndburn's Conservative Party, aided by the village committee and many members of the community - has been successful and that we will never again experience such regular traffic congestion.
The latest stage of our campaign to try to encourage drivers to keep to the new 20 mph speed limit is the erection of an electronic speed awareness sign to alert drivers to their current driving speed. Following a meeting between LCC's Highways Department and Liz and John Creasy ,representing the village and agreed at the village committee's March meeting, it has been erected across from Rydal Mount. The work was completed on Monday 24 March 2014.
