WORK to tackle speeding on a notorious road in Feckenham has been welcomed, but more is needed say officials.

Back in March, Redditch MP Rachel Maclean hosted a public meeting at Feckenham Village Shop to meet with villagers to discuss the ongoing issue of speeding along Droitwich Road.

Following the meeting, Mrs Maclean, councillors, and the police, have been working together to try to tackle the issue and make it safer for residents.

As a result police have been conducting speed calming exercises using speed guns in an attempt to slow traffic down.

The MP, who recently popped back to Feckenham to meet with residents, said: "I’m glad that progress has been achieved so far, but I will be continuing to monitor events.

"I want people and their families to be able to live safely in this beautiful area.”

A number of options are being looked at including ‘dragon’s teeth’ before the bridge on Droitwich Road, parking opposite the village shop, and lifting the centre white line along the road.

County councillor Jane Potter said: “I know how concerned residents are about speeding in Feckenham.

"As the village’s representative on Worcestershire County Council, which is responsible for our roads, I am doing what I can, working alongside our MP and borough councillor Craig Warhurst, to find solutions to this problem.

"I’m afraid we won’t be able to solve this issue overnight, but I want to reassure you I’m working hard with council officers to tackle this issue.”
