New 20 mph speed limit from 15 January 2018

Posted on Jan 18, 2018

Members may not be aware that the “20” signs, which appeared early this year on various roads, became official on Monday 15 January. SPRA will be asking why this was not adequately publicised (the writer only discovered it, by chance, on Thursday 18 January and had thus been breaking the law for three days).

The Council’s website link for this item of “news” is

and this includes a map showing which roads are still subject to a 30 mph speed limit. The map on that website shows clearly that (for example) Shirley Church Road is now a 20 mph road.
