Speeding in Denton has reached boiling point with residents contacting local Councillors demanding urgent action. Family pets have been killed and children from the nearby primary school have come close to being hit.

Newhaven Liberal Democrats have created a petition asking for the following :

- Denton Road speed limit to be lowered from 30mph to 20mph, taking into account the play park and the primary school as well as the dangerous bend in the road.

- A mirror to be installed by the Flying Fish pub so cars can see oncoming traffic as they come round the dangerous bend.

- A speed warning sign to be installed near the primary school, warning drivers if they are over the speed limit.

Cllr Sean Macleod Newhaven  of North Ward explained: “Residents are crying out for action on speeding on Denton Road and are calling on ESCC to deliver some sort of speed reduction system. We are not asking for all three steps, just one of them would be very welcome, but something has to change. We can't continue like we are. There are school children being put at risk and residents are contacting me that there pets havebeen killed by speeding cars.”

Cllr Corina Watts of Denton Ward added: "As a local Councillor and parent, I find the speeding on Denton Road a real concern and it would be fantastic if ESCC can listen to our concerns and implement some changes. It's only a matter of time before a child from Denton Primary is hit by a speeding vehicle and then people will be asking why we haven't done something about it.”
