A report, in Wagtail our Parish Magazine, on the proceedings of Gressingham Parish Council, throws new light on the intentions of that PC in respect of the use of a SpID. The Wagtail report says:
“Caton Parish Council has kindly agreed to allow Gressingham to share one of Caton’s Speed Indicator Devices, (SpID) signs; this will be used periodically on the main road at both ends of the village.”
We had already reported earlier in this Blog that Lancashire Highways Department had installed a suitable plate on existing poles in Gressingham, to which a SpID could be fitted.
