A few other possibilities were then discussed, including white hatch markings on the road and white fencing on the approach giving a built-up area impression.


Both of these measures would slow traffic on the B4352 from Hay-on-Wye, councillors hoped.

The clerk was asked by councillors to check the progress of the traffic regulation order to reduce the speed limit from 60mph and to get costings from Herefordshire Council contractor Balfour Beatty Living Places for suggestions.
