Safer and quieter streets in Kings Hedges

In Kings Hedges, there are many residential roads with 30 mile and hour speed limits, and every parent (and cat owner too, I suspect) knows what it is to worry about that screech of tyres out in your street.

Thankfully the City Council is moving forward with a City-wide scheme aimed at introducing 20mph speed limits in most streets within the city.  Major roads will remain at 30mph.

I certainly agree with this reporter with the Cambridge News, and support these changes.

It is crazy that the limit for the streets with our homes, and near our children's schools are still 30mph limits.

I think we can agree that "20 is plenty" in most cases.

The issue will be discussed at the Environment Scrutiny Committee meeting on
Tuesday, 15th January, 2013 5.00 pm.

The agenda and reports for this meeting can be found here.  The 20mph Project is item 8.
