A PETITION is being organised to see the nighttime speed limit on a busy Otterbourne road reduced following issues with roadworks.

Councillor Tracy Rodford told Otterbourne Parish Council that the campaign was being launched by residents living on Main Road due to traffic being diverted through the village during overnight closures on the M3.

Residents argue the night works have caused disruption to their sleep and are now seeking a 20mph speed limit at night time when closures are put in place during the SMART motorway upgrades on the M3.
