Traffic calming measures could soon be installed in Lammas Leas Road in Market Rasen after residents raised safety fears with the town council.

Speaking at the authority’s monthly meeting, resident Anne Chaplain said the street 
was becoming “like a racetrack.”

She added: “There is only a pavement on one side of the road and school children use it to cut through and people use it as a route to Tesco.

“Certainly the road would benefit from traffic calming.”

Mayor Steve Bunney agreed with the residents and said the authority would contact the Highways department of Lincolnshire County Council and 
the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership about getting something put in place.

He added: “We are suggesting there should be some speed bumps 
or traffic calming like 
that along Beechers Way, there is certainly a precedent.”

A petition has now been started by the street’s residents to support 
the town council in their push for traffic calming measures in Lammas Leas Road.
