Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

ASH­FORD’S con­tro­ver­sial shared scheme has been “highly suc­cess­ful” in re­duc­ing driv­ers’ speeds and in­jury crashes.

That’s the con­clu­sion of a re­port be­ing pre­sented to next Tues­day’s meet­ing of Ash­ford’s Joint Trans­porta­tion Board.

The re­port says: “Speeds have been re­duced to an av­er­age of 21.5mph and there have been no per­sonal in­jury crashes in the first full year.”

Noise and emis­sions have also been re­duced.
