The two reports also explained that, as part of the assessment process, the policy also takes into account the number of personal injury collisions in the last three years, and if route being assessed suffers community severance (divides residents fromlocal services).
The outcome of the assessmentw was that neither Southwood Road nor New Village Road required further intervention from the department for the following reasons:
- There is a good level of compliance with the posted speed limit.
- From the available data, which is maintained by the Police, there have been very few personal injury collisions within the last three years.
