PAGE PARK, STAPLE HILL - Proposed 20 mph speed limit

Someone filling in a questionnaire

To compliment improvements to Page Park, it is proposed to reduce the speed limit to 20mph on minor roads around the park.

This approach is in line with guidance from the government, which is encouraging local authorities to introduce 20 mph speed limits or zones, in residential areas being used by people on foot or bicycle.

.

Department for Transport guidelines indicate that a 20 mph speed restriction could be introduced without accompanying traffic calming measures should average speeds be less than 24 mph. Speed recordings on Park Road (south of South View) and South View indicate that on average, vehicles are travelling at speeds less than 24 mph.

 

The purpose of the scheme is to reduce traffic speed in the roads around Page Park, which will improve road safety for vulnerable road users as well as making walking and cycling to Page Park more attractive.

 

The proposed scheme is to reduce the speed limit from 30 mph to 20 mph along Park Road, South View, Hill House Road and Haythorn Court.
