Our Schools Active Travel team is raising awareness of a current Welsh Government consultation on introducing 20mph speed limits on many of the roads in our residential and built up areas.
They want to encourage schools, pupils and their parents to respond to the Welsh Government consultation as this is your opportunity to share your views on reducing the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on our roads and streets. The Welsh Government is seeking views on lowering the default speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on restricted roads – this includes roads with streetlights space no more than 200 yards apart.
The consultation can be completed online, or you can download a form that can either be emailed or posted to Welsh Government. Here is a direct link to the survey Proposal to reduce speed limit to 20mph on residential streets | GOV.WALES – scroll to ‘How to respond’. The survey has ten questions, many of which are multiple choice. The questions focus on your thoughts about reducing speed limits and the impact this could have. The consultation closes on 1st October 2021.
