The traffic calming measures were introduced in late 2007 to reduce the number of accidents and to address the concerns of local residents. As a result, a series of consultation events were held prior to the scheme being approved.
Over the most recent five-year period since the speed tables and 20miles per hour limit were introduced, there has been one slight accident, prior to last week's tragedy.
