Model Village Speed Limit (A423 Southam / Long Itchington)

We the undersigned petition the council to We call for a reduction in the speed limit along the A423 encompassing the Model Village & Cemex site entrances between Southam and Long Itchington, tying into the Long Itchtington speed limits.

The road in this location is currently 50mph. With both a residential and an industrial junction in close proximity of each other, and blind spots due to the topography, there have been a number of serious accidents and close calls on this short stretch in recent years impacting both pedestrians and road users. With the introduction of a new cycleway along the Lias Line, introducing more pedestrian and cycle traffic, the risk stands to increase in this location.
A reduction in the limit here, tying into the Long Itchington speed limits, would reduce the risk to pedestrians and road users, and calm the traffic entering the village and is supported by Long Itchington Parish Council.
