Dear Staffordshire County Council,

Please can you advise whether the red road markings as you enter Swindon on Wombourne Road and also on Hinksford Lane are installed as rumble strips or speed humps?

Are you then able to advise to what standard they were installed and are maintained to (for example The Highways (Traffic Calming) Regulations 1993 or Local Transport Note 1/07).

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Rob Dell

Staffordshire County Council

Dear Rob Dell

Thank you for your request for information.

Please find information provided by the relevant service team(s) below.

" These are slightly raised road markings along the lines of rumble strips which form part of the village gateway. Additional markings (dragons teeth) and speed terminal signs are also present.
The gateway feature is used to inform the driver that the road conditions are about to change. The markings are a change in road surface which the driver may hear or feel along with the visual elements of the other markings and road signs.

LTN1/07 indicates this is a valid approach to a village gateway."
