EXECUTIVE councillor Alan Mitchell said: “The safety of all road users is of paramount importance to us, and we take the concerns of local people extremely seriously.

“We’re always happy to discuss road safety issues with residents.

“In addition to contacting us by letter or over the telephone, our staff are available at the regular neighbourhood forum meetings to talk to local people face-to-face.

“Unfortunately, we can’t implement traffic calming schemes at every site reported to us due to financial pressures, so we have to prioritise where we put these measures to make sure that the most dangerous sites are dealt with first.

“There is strict criteria to determine where road safety improvements are introduced and I’m sure local people would agree that roads where serious accidents occur have to take priority.

“Much work is taking place to reduce the number of road casualties on Trafford’s roads and to reduce road congestion in the borough.”
