Ram Hill 20 mph speed limit

Concerns were raised by the Local Member, Parish Council and local residents about vehicle speeds within the Ram Hill area. It is a rural lane with no footway for pedestrians and is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The road is a bus route for a rural bus service and is used to access a small business park within the lane.  Located in Serridge Lane is a nursery school and Paul’s Place. 

The purpose of the scheme is to reduce traffic speeds in Ram Hill, Broad Lane and Serridge Lane, which will improve road safety for vulnerable road users as well as making walking and cycling more attractive.

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

The following roads are affected by this scheme:

  • Ram Hill
  • Broad Lane
  • Serridge Lane

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.
Target Audience
  • All residents
