A Pencaitland resident has called for traffic calming measures to be installed in his street, fearing a child could be hurt.

John Wood, a former motor mechanic, voiced concern about the rise in the volume and speed of vehicles in Woodhall Road where he has lived for 48 years.

He called on East Lothian Council to put in speed bumps from pavement to pavement and presented 35-signature petition from the residents to the council’s petitions committee last Thursday.

He explained that there were a number of school age children living in the road who played and cycled regularly, and there were more vehicles than houses on the street.
