Renewed calls for 30mph zone on Maldon road where schoolboy was hit by car
5:00pm Saturday 14th December 2013 in News
The road where a young boy was hit by a speeding car should be a 30mph zone, say his grieving mum and grandmother.
Essex County Council plans to lower the 50mph speed limit on the A414 Maldon bypass to 40mph.
Earlier this year it widened a traffic island separating vehicles in Fullbridge Road, built a crossing point without traffic lights and extended the footpath at the Fullbridge roundabout.
Heybridge schoolboy Ryan Fleming, eight, was hit by a Porsche as he crossed the road in January 2011 and later died in hospital.
Ryan's mum, Melissa Rowe and grandmother, Angeline Wright, welcomed the road improvements but called for the speed limit to be reduced to 30mph.
