THE neighbourhood police panel are to be urged to look at speeding problems on residential roads.

Members on Royston Town Council's general purposes and highways committee were told on Monday evening that problems existed on the Twigden estate and the Burns Road area.

In spite of a recent police speed check on the Twigden estate, police discovered that there was not any excessive speeding.

Cllr Robert Smith said police were visible when making the speed check which could account for the outcome.

Cllr Elizabeth Beardwell said residental areas where speeding is reported should have a 20mph limit.

She said there were speeding problems, too, in Old North Road and Melbourn Road.
