Road humps or a speed table could be a way to tackle traffic congestion in two busy roads serving three Skegness schools, councillors have heard.

Ways to calm traffic in Cavendish Road and Brunswick Drive were discussed at the full meeting of Skegness Town Council last week.

Parking and congestion has been a problem in these roads for some time, with many ways suggested to help alleviate the problem.

Coun Mark Anderson said the main time for issues included when parents dropped off their children for school.

But the cost of a traffic calming scheme could be considerable, he thought.

Coun Sid Dennis agreed it was a problem which occurred at every school but it was a really good start to tackling the problem.

Coun Neil Cooper was sceptical of road humps or a ramp as they caused a lot of noise.

He said those in an ambulance ‘would be shaken to bits’ and making the area ‘one way’ would stop it.

Coun Dennis confirmed that residents in that area had suggested to ward members it was a way forward. The council voted to support the proposed measure.
