SPEED reduction measures and parking restrictions near the new Coneygear park in Oxmoor are set to go ahead in spite of objections from residents and councillors.
Huntingdonshire's traffic management committee is expected to approve the scheme on Monday (June 5) after hearing that three people - two of them child pedestrians - had been injured in three years in the area, which lies between Coneygear Road and Buttsgrove Way.
Surveys clocked drivers at up to 55mph and 44mph on two of the stretches earmarked for speed reduction measures.
The new measures will be put in place in the summer to tie in with the opening of the park.

They include speed cushions, which help reduce car speeds, but do not affect wider vehicles, such as buses, ambulances and fire engines. There will also be a gateway feature and two ramped flat-topped road tables.
