NEW road safety measures are to be considered when a notorious road is resurfaced.
Labour councillors for Deighton Jean Calvert, Ken Smith and Susan May are to ask people what they think about possible traffic calming on Deighton Road where nine children have been hurt in the last five years.
Clr Smith said: "Speed is always a problem and there are suggestions to reduce this but also to help pedestrians cross the road near Sheepridge village centre, Keldergate and Whitaker Street."
People who use the road have raised concerns about safety before and Clr Calvert, chairman of Kirklees Council's Deighton area committee, urged these people to get involved in the consultation.
She said: "Many residents have raised problems about this road which, though a local road, is heavily used as a feeder between Bradford and Leeds roads."
Leaflets will be posted to nearby homes this month to allow people to have their say.
Clr Smith added: "There have been 21 injury accidents here over the last five years, nine of them being to children, so we want local people to respond in great numbers to this consultation."
