Families living on Brinsea Road want a 20mph speed limit to help curb the speed of vehicles that frequently break the existing 30mph limit.

Christine Nuttall, who has lived on Brinsea Road for nine years, has launched a petition calling for further restrictions. The petition has the backing of Congresbury’s North Somerset councillor Phil Neve.

“Over the years I have lived here,  the speed of cars and HGVs going through our village has increased to the point it’s now becoming a danger to the residents young and old so I’ve decided it’s time to do something about it,” said Christine.

The petition can be signed at the Co-op, Cottage Loaf, Hodders Butchers and the Post Office.
