Key quotes from Francis Avenue residents

“Could do with a set of speed cushions in each block to avoid racing between calming measures. Currently cars heading north accelerate hard off the Devonshire raised junction.”

“Francis Avenue is used as a rat run and the speed cushions aren’t working, most drivers don’t slow down and the noise is ridiculous.”
