There is an astonishing number of road users that exceed the speed limit of 30mph when travelling north-east (towards Margate, away from Canterbury) on Island Road in Sturry. Many people accelerate to over 30mph between Homewood Road and the junction of Fairview Gardens. This causes significant safety issues for residents entering or exiting their driveways, cyclists, pedestrians walking along the pavement and those waiting for and exiting the bus via the stop at Homewood Road. As well as the safety issues, the level of noise pollution this causes is notable and affects many of the residents living in the vicinity. We feel a speed camera would be well positioned here to deter road users from breaching the 30mph speed limit and would increase the safety of the road for everyone.
