Scheme Review - Princess Road / Princess Parkway (Speed Limit Reduced from 40mph to 30mph) pdf icon PDF 444 KB

Report of the Operational Director of Highways

 

The purpose of this report is to review the speed limit reduction scheme that was implemented on the A5103 - Princess Road and the impact on 2 adjacent roads (Alexandra Road South and Nell Lane). The speed limit along Princess Road was recently reduced from 40 mph down to 30mph, implemented on the 30 April 2017 via the introduction of a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO). This temporary order was put in place as a safety precaution while the permanent order was progressed.

 

The scheme was developed in response to public concerns around road safety, and in particular the safety of pedestrians crossing Princess Rd. The severity of the concerns had been heightened by two fatal collisions involving pedestrians at the Darley Avenue crossing in December 2015 and December 2016.
