Speed restriction measures urgently required

Prior to the recent re-surfacing works, Evans Way had speed restriction measures (speed humps) in place, primarily - I would assume - to help protect the workforce whilst they moved around the estate. Now that the resurfacing work has almost been completed, it appears that there are no plans to reinstate these speed restrictions which worries me greatly. Due to the issues with parking in Walterbush Road, and subsequent access through to Burford Road, there are an increasing number of vehicles using Evans Way as a "rat run" to get from Walterbush Road to Burford Road. I have persoanlly witnessed vehicles travelling at unacceptable speed through the estate, including one young driver who felt it appropriate to perform handbrake turns in the middle of Evans Way. We now have a very nice child's playground area to service the large number of young families in the estate and I fear it will not be long before a child is hit (and worse still killed) by a vehicle using Evans Way as a shortcut. If there are no plans to install speed restrictive measures then I would suggest this is reviewed as a matter of urgency before there is a fatality.

Thank you for your response. I did raise this with Bellway and their response was that if the Council advise that speed restrictive measures are required then they will fit them... So who is responsible?
