Breakthrough in speed fight
TEMPORARY speed monitoring devices are set to be brought in on a busy road.
The speed data will be gathered on the 30mph Keelings Road, in Northwood, after residents labelled the stretch a rat-run.
Northwood Residents' Association was updated on safety issues on the road by Stoke-on-Trent City Council highways officers during a meeting last week.
Devices which measure a driver's speed at a certain point are already in place on the road.

Association chairman John Birch said: "It was a very positive meeting and the council representative was very helpful.
"We've tried to find out who put the speed indicators at the top and bottom of the road for some time now, and the officer promised to look into this.
"We also want to know if it collects data about the number of times the speed limit is broken, and this is being looked into."
