Bromley Heath - Quakers Road/Oakdale Road/Four Acre Road/Cleeve Park Road area - Proposed 20mph Speed Limit

Concerns have been raised by the school and local residents about both the volume and speed of rat running traffic in the Quakers Road area. An investigation carried out in 2014 recommended implementation of a 20mph speed limit to address excess speed and make rat running less attractive.

The purpose of the scheme is to reduce traffic speeds in the Quaker Road area to discourage rat running traffic and make the roads more pedestrian and cycle friendly.

The proposed scheme is to reduce the speed limit from 30 mph to 20 mph.

The following roads are affected by this scheme:-

  • Baugh Gardens
  • Baugh Road
  • Bromley Drive
  • Bromley Heath Avenue
  • Bury Hill View
  • Cleeve Lawns
  • Cleeve Park Road
  • Downleaze

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.
