Local Highways Initiative (LHI)

LHI Great Wilbraham General Arrangement Overview
Click on the image to download the plan

In October 2021, the Great Wilbraham Parish Council applied for Local Highways Improvement funding to introduce buffer zones on the three entrances to the village. The buffer zones to be introduced are on Mill road, The Lanes and Station Road. The intention of these buffer zones is to slow down traffic before it enters the village.

The LHI application was prepared by the Transport Working Group (TWG), a volunteer group in the village, and supported by the parish council. The TWG also presented the proposal to highways and we are pleased that our application was approved for funding.

The location of buffer zones and gates is shown on the map. There will also be 2 posts that are erected to affix speed measuring devices. The location of these posts shall be determined in due course.

Any questions regarding this activity should be addressed to:
