Local Labour Councillors have been asked by residents in Oliphant Street to investigate the possibility of traffic calming and have asked the Director of Transport to investigate what can be done;
“There is a problem with scooters and motorcycles. One of the racetracks is Oliphant / Peach / Ilbert and back to Oliphant…..Oliphant Street must have one of the highest percentages of young families in the city.”
“There was a car crash on the junction of Oliphant Street and Sixth Avenue last night. I saw the debris on the road and the crumpled car that obviously came in to the estate at 6th avenue and got rammed in the side by another car speeding down Oliphant from west to east.
