Little Carlton residents want to reduce speed limit on A616 to 40mph

Residents are to show communal unity as part of a day of action to tackle speeding and other issues in their village.

Charles Brightmore, who has lived in Little Carlton for more than 17 years, said the issues were a problem for councillors and residents in South Muskham and Little Carlton.

The parish council has lobbied for a speed monitoring van because of issues on the A616, which passes through both villages.

Mr Brightmore said: “We are hoping to get the speed limit on the A616 reduced from 50mph to 40.”

There has already been a reduction from 60 to 50mph on the road through Newark, with a variation of limits depending on which village the road passes through.

The busy stretch drops to 30mph at South Muskham, but remains 50mph at Carlton, which the parish council hoped to challenge.

At least ten volunteers and councillors will use a speed gun on Sunday from 9.30am, while others litter pick.
