Thank you for your enquiry and highlighting your concerns regarding vehicle speed along Twelve Acre Drive.
We are not able to replace the now removed 40mph repeater (reminder) signs with 30mph repeater signs along Twelve Acre Drive. This is due to the rules regarding speed limit signage prohibiting the use of 30mph repeater signs where a road has a system of carriageway lighting. The presence of carriageway lighting means that a road automatically has a speed limit of 30mph unless signed otherwise.
For concerns of vehicle speed or dangerous driving along this section of road, that the best course of action would be contacting Thames Valley Police.
Speed enforcement is currently the responsibility of Thames Valley Police and whilst we will raise these concerns with them ourselves residents can raise them directly. As I’m sure you appreciate, they will have to prioritise resources accordingly.
The community speed-watch scheme has also recently been relaunched by TVP which may be of interest to you. Of which more information can be found at
