Gi­ant multi-coloured speed bump ap­pears

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

The road is lower than the river and dips in the dark­ness un­der the bridge, catch­ing out many driv­ers when it’s flooded at night.

Last week the Ex­am­iner re­ported how Toby Hosker and Han­nah Stirk had to be res­cued from the roof of their Ford Ka af­ter they drove into the flood­wa­ter and got stuck.

Glee­son Homes, which has moved in to com­plete an es­tate left half-fin­ished when a pre­vi­ous de­vel­oper went bust, has pre­vi­ously pledged to solve the flood­ing prob­lems by in­stalling a pump­ing sys­tem.

For now they have made a start by putting up warn­ing signs at the side of the bridge with a 10mph speed limit – and build­ing a moun­tain­ous speed bump that stands out like a sore thumb.
