It has been resolved that the Vale Council will be trialing a 20 mph scheme in PSE using experimental Traffic Regulation Orders together with the collection of traffic data in the first 6 months of operation. This data will inform decisions taken on the permanency of the schemes or otherwise, within the 18 month trial periods and will be the subject of a future report to Cabinet.
The data from both schemes will also be made available to Welsh Government
to assist with their pilot project
The Welsh Government has also announced that 20mph
legislation will figure in this year’s legislative programme.
The public consultation on changing the default speed limit on residential streets from 30mph to 20mph is now open until 1st October 2021.
