ARA                                  A meeting took place between ARA, Cllr Kilpatrick and Residents of Hillfoot Road to raise

                                          concerns about speeding vehicles on Hillfoot Road.  Traffic monitored over a seven day

                            period showed the average speed to be 31MPH.  As such and because the road is a main bus

is being driven over 30MPH but under 35MPH within a 30MPH zone).   Traffic police will monitor speeds on Hillfoot Road over a period of six weeks. Dates for this have to be decided.  ARA will come along to a future meeting to discuss the outcome.
