ROAD safety improvements have been approved for Ketton and Little Casterton.

Rutland County Council’s cabinet considered a number of traffic calming measures at its meeting on Tuesday.

Council leader Roger Begy (Con), who is also the portfolio holder for highways, said: “As part of our commitments to make people feel safer and reduce the number of accidents on our roads, we have agreed to implement a number of schemes to reduce the impact of traffic on residential areas.”

A pelican crossing, two signs and two areas with rumble strips were put forward for Ketton at a cost of £49,000, after a request by the parish council and Ketton Primary School.

In Little Casterton there will be two flashing speed signs and a gate, costing £12,000 in total.

The county council is asking the parish council’s to contribute £1,500 each towards the scheme.
