OLD SODBURY - A432 Badminton Road - Proposed 30mph speed limit

The Frome Vale Area Forum have funded a scheme in the 2014/15 Local Transport Capital Programme to introduce a 30mph speed limit on the A432 Badminton Road, Old Sodbury.

The purpose of the scheme is to:

  • reduce the speed of vehicles through Old Sodbury village.
  • reduce disconnection of the two halves of the village.
  • improve safety for pedestrians.
  • improve safety for vehicles at junctions.

The proposed scheme is to:

  • introduce a 30mph speed limit on the A432 Badminton Road in Old Sodbury and at the junction with Commonmead Lane.
  • install the sign assemblies required to implement the proposed 30mph speed limit (30mph repeater signs can not be placed on the length of the A432 Badminton Road with street lighting).
  • install 30mph speed limit roundel road markings.
  • remove existing 40mph speed limit signing and roundel road markings.


Subject to the comments received at consultation and public advertisement, the proposals will be implemented during the 2014-15 financial year.


Please view the statement of reasons and the drawings (T428-278-01 shows the extents of the proposed 30mph speed limit, T428-278-02 shows the existing 40mph speed limit signing and road markings that will be removed and T428-278-03 shows the signing and road markings for the proposed 30mph speed limit) before responding to the consultation.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
