    Waste of time and money that could be better spent providing speed control at Bray Shop. its well within the 30 mile an hr limit/Callington Town boundary. Why slow it down more.

    These measures look reasonable to me but something should be done at the top where this lane meets the main Launceston Road. This is a dangerous junction with a hill start and poor visibility – an accident waiting to happen.
