WORK is finally under way to finish road safety improvements in Paddock.
And it will mean the removal and replacement of the oldest road humps in Huddersfield.
The Paddock humps are made up of cobblestones and were erected more than 15 years ago.
But local people have been campaigning the past few years for them to be removed from Church Street.
Local councillor Barbara Jones said: "The old cobbled humps did not slow down cars and often cars drive over them at high speed and the noise is very loud.
"The noise was unbearable for many residents of Church Street. Some even moved house to escape the commotion.
"For many years local residents had been asking for effective road safety improvements.
"We are pleased that the work on plateaux and narrowing will be finished by the end of this month."
Clr Jones toured the roadworks site with fellow Labour councillors Mehboob Khan and Mohan Sokhal.
Most of the work will be done on Sundays to minimise inconvenience to businesses and residents.
