The following agenda for the first meeting of the Westwood Road Safety Group is published below with a link to the audio recordings that were made for the first and also second meetings. These recordings are large, the first being over 86MB the second 100MB in size.
The first recording which had WCC Highway engineers present is over one and half hours long but netherless is an important record of the proceedings, especially as we are now coming to the end of the 20mph Speed Trial and concern over the signs will be one of the issues that residents will be thinking about. A report on the meetings was published in the September 2010 Minutes. The files are best saved to your hard disk before listening and need a broadband connection. (April 2012)
