Road Safety


A1 Safety Report 2019

Recognising local concerns about safety on Falloden Way following three fatal accidents, the Residents Association commissioned an independent safety report from the specialist traffic consultancy organisation Wilbar Associates Ltd. View

Speed Checks on Suburb Roads

Using a speed checker purchased by the RA, and after consulting the local police, the Roads and Traffic committee has carried out speed checks on Suburb roads since 2014 to provide measured evidence for those asserting traffic speeds, whether high or low. These are necessarily snapshots, as the equipment requires an operator in attendance (sitting in a car), rather than automated tests over days, but the equipment is understood to be highly accurate, and the results are of interest, covering between 25 and 105 vehicles at each location.
