Avebury Parish Council has launched a petition to get traffic to slow down as it speeds through the village.

It wants the speed limit reduced from 60 miles per hour to 40mph on the A4361 from the Beckhampton roundabout.

The petition is aimed at improving actual road safety, reducing noise, and improving air quality in the village which sits within the World Heritage Site attracting over 350,000 visitors a year.

It wants electronic speed indicators and hopes to improve conditions for pedestrians and other vulnerable road users and residents alike. Petition is at aveburyparishcouncil.org.
