Coldhams Lane in Romsey Town is a busy arterial route linking the many and varied pleasures of the Newmarket Road retail parks with the Cambridge inner ring road running down the eastern side of the City.

Late in 2018 a number of residents of Coldhams Lane and the adjacent streets raised concerns about speeding.  County Councillor Noel Kavanagh contacted our friends at Cambridgeshire Community Roadwatch to see whether they could help us get some data about vehicle speeds along that stretch of road.

We’re now seeking residents’ views about possible options for speed reduction measures.
