And St John’s Village could be made a 20 mph zone if parishioners agree.
St John Deputy Andrew Lewis and the Constable, Richard Dupré yesterday met officers from Transport and Technical Services to discuss residents’ concerns about road safety in both areas.
Deputy Lewis said he was delighted that the department had taken the trouble to come out to see the problems for themselves.
‘They said they would be very happy to work with us to find the best solution,’ he said.
The next step is for traffic engineers to come up with proposals and for the parish to decide on the suggested speed limit change.
The proposals for Sion are likely to include extending the 30 mph limit, widening pavements and introducing traffic calming measures.
And, perhaps to the annoyance of the Women’s Institute, who are campaigning against street clutter, the department have suggested erecting two large new signs welcoming drivers to Sion and highlighting the speed limit.
