Mr Williams confirmed that he would be putting forward the following recommendations to WG:

 

Signs need to be updated (warning)

Speed indicators need to be installed (advising motorists of their speed)

Recommend a reduction in speed

40mph would be a reasonable speed at the Broad Oak section of the A40

The lay-by – restricted parking or to be closed off

Hedges to be cut down regularly

Speed enforcement to be applied as soon as possible
