Three buffer zones and gateway features have been installed in three village entrances that approach Prickwillow.
The improvements, stated in the parish council’s annual report, comes after Prickwillow Village Council set up a traffic management plan group to ‘actively combat calming measures’.
With the help of data from the village’s Speed Watch team, the group – which consists of an East Cambs District Council member, Cambridgeshire County Council member and The City of Ely Council, a local highways improvement bid was accepted.
The report adds that “the new village sign, after two weeks of standing, was unfortunately knocked over by a straying vehicle.
“The committee actively sort repairs and decided that the sign looked better turned around.”
It continues to say that “the refurbishment to the village bench by the bridge on River Lark bank is to proceed via the Drainage Museum engineers and a correspondent from Manningtree who wishes to help in memory of his father who enjoyed many boat trips throughout Prickwillow”.
