MORE traffic calming measures could soon be introduced in 20mph zones.
Following monitoring and consultation, Calderdale Council is looking at other schemes, such as signs, to reduce speed in the 20mph zones in Stainland and Holywell Green.
A report, to be considered by Cabinet members on Monday, says: “The visual impact of measures and signing, and an appropriate level of local consultation supported by road safety education, training and publicity campaigns, is aimed at encouraging resident drivers and visitors alike to ‘buy-in’ to the road safety message through the speed limit changes.
“However, if traffic speeds do not reduce then additional measures will be considered and introduced to improve safety for vulnerable road users.”
The authority also manages a 20mph zone in Elland, where monitoring continues.
At the same Cabinet meeting councillors will hear that the authority has received £73,000 for its ‘Bikeability’ scheme – which funds cycle training.
Around 1,700 junior age pupils and 100 secondary school pupils will take part.
Councillors will also be asked to agree funding for highways works, including £75,000 for carriageway works to Calderdale Way, between Elland Wood Bottom and Ainley Top Roundabout.
They will also be asked to fund £115,000 in footway and carriageway improvements in Brighouse, on Mission Street, River Street and Birds Royd Lane.
