Community Speed Watch In Rufforth


The Parish Council are pleased to share the news of the installation of new, permanent speedwatch signs at each of the three village gateways. The signs are part of a wider initiative that will shortly see the installation of Vehicle Activated Signs* (VAS) on Bradley Lane and Wetherby Road, Rufforth, and is another step in our efforts to improve safety for our residents.

The equipment has been largely funded by the Parish Council, with the aid of grant funding from the North Yorkshire Police, Fire & Crime Commissioners office, AJ1 scheme. Our thanks go to the hardy team of Community Speedwatch volunteers who have gathered evidence over the last three years that helped to drive the scheme forward, and their continued efforts to improve road safety.

*14/11/2021 The Vehicle Activated Signs have now been installed. More information can be found in recent News
