New speed limit and traffic calming measures proposed for Warwick estate

A new speed limit and traffic calming measures have been proposed for an estate in Warwick.

Warwickshire County Council is proposing to install a new 20mph zone in the Chase Meadow area of the town.

A new speed limit has been proposed for an estate in Warwick.

A new speed limit has been proposed for an estate in Warwick.

The council listed a public notice in this week's Leamington and Warwick Courier (November 29 edition) detailing the areas which could be in the new speed limit.

As well as a new speed limit there are also proposals to introduce speed humps/cushions/tables.

Speaking about the new 20mph limit, John Holland, a county councillor for Warwick, said: "This is part of the safer routes to schools plans.

"This is a scheme that I have been working on for several years but the first 20mph zone in Warwick was achieved by Newburgh School by my predecessor Raj Randev in 2001. Since then we have got 20mph limits in other parts of Warwick.

"This speed zone is part of a larger comprehensive scheme to improve safety for children but we are also looking at other measures that could be introduced such as addressing concerns about the children getting across Gogbrook on their way to school.

"This would be a first to have a 20mph in the whole of the estate.

"The residents are very strongly in favour of this and if all goes well I hope that the 20mph could be introduced next year."

Warwickshire County Council have been contacted for a comment.
