Boroughwide 20mph limit made permanent
Read the Review of boroughwide 20mph limit report that was presented to the cabinet.
The specific decision made was:
- To agree that the 20mph speed limit Experimental Order is made permanent subject to Leamouth Road and Leamouth Roundabout being omitted from the traffic order and reverting to 30mph.
- To agree that the roads listed in 5.10* be prioritised for additional traffic calming to reinforce the 20 mph speed limit.
- To note that further work will continue to review road safety throughout the borough in order to target ongoing traffic calming work to those areas most in need of improvements.
- To note that further awareness and education programmes will be delivered to build awareness and ownership of the 20 mph limit.
*see LBTH's Review of boroughwide 20mph limit cabinet report.
The main word missing from the decision was enforcement so we'll be following this up with the council and police.
