Plea for traffic calming in Newtongrange

A PENSIONER is calling for traffic calming measures after being knocked down by a cyclist outside his Newtongrange home.

He said: “There’s no speed ramps and I asked the council for speed ramps last year. They said they wouldn’t put them in because there’s been no fatalities.
