Thread: Speed limit to be lowered to 20mph in Wales

    Re: Speed limit to be lowered to 20mph in Wales

    Had my first experience of the 20 today. Magor to Portskewett.

    I stuck to 20 in all the 20 spots which is about 75% of the five mile journey. I had three cars overtake me and one w4nker sign off a brand new 22 plate Range Rover driver

    On the return journey I had two vans overtake me but no w4nker signs

    My truck struggled to stay at 20 and my fuel average was 4.6mpg. I later did a 4 mile stretch of road and stuck to the 30mph limit. I averaged 7.7.

    I'll be honest, I found it an absolute ball ache.

    Two stretches of road could have 20mph speed limits abandoned, less than three months after they were introduced.

    it makes sense to put it back to 30 if it's on a through road, but keep 20 on side roads and housing estates.
    hopefully they'll arrive there eventually

    I have my driving assessment tomorrow after having my right leg amputated. I actually use my prosthetic to drive and the biggest problem I've got is actually keeping the car at 20mph.My driving assessor thinks it's stupid as does my driving instructor who giggles and admits she can never keep to the speed limit yet muggins yer will fail if I can't keep the car to 20 as that will be seen as not keeping control of the car. Makes my blood boil.

    Since the aim is to reduce accidents and cut pollution, can we expect Drakeford to petition Westminster for a smaller Barnett settlement since hospitals will be used less and we'll no be spending as much on fuel duty and VAT?

    I've driven through Llandaff North and Whitchurch up to the roundabout, and frequently haven't gone above 17/18mph. Much in the same way that cautious drivers go a couple of MPH below 30 in case they exceed the limit, they now are going a couple of MPH below the 20 limit.

    Might be an idea for you to read the policy.

    Re: Speed limit to be lowered to 20mph in Wales

    I think 20mph is too high..most of you are rage raod drivers and can't even navigate a roundabout..I would lower it to 15mph and see how you get on.

    TWO areas in Monmouthshire which had been part of the Welsh Government’s 20mph trial will revert back to 30mph, the council has confirmed.

    Last month, the Senedd voted to bring in a new law that will cut speed limits from 30mph to 20mph on most residential roads across Wales from next September.

    The government claims the lower speeds will improve road safety, but some Caldicot residents questioned these claims and called for the changes to be scrapped.

    Monmouthshire County Council has confirmed proposals to change two areas on the B4245 – known as the Caldicot Bypass – back to a 30mph limit after “concerns have been received regarding the speed limit.”

    The council set out plans for the B4245 to revert to 30mph at Caldicot from Woodstock Way to the Mitel roundabout – although a part-time 20mph limit would be in place during school start and finish times.

    And the 20mph limit will also be removed from the Mitel roundabout to Portskewett, reverting to 30mph until just before the bridge over the old railway line.

    Elsewhere on the B4245, the 20mph limit will remain in place in Magor and Undy, in Rogiet, and in Caldicot – between Longfellow Road and Woodstock Way.

    The council has proposed the speed limit on the B4245 between Undy and Rogiet is lowered from 60mph to 40mph.

    Between Rogiet and Caldicot, it is proposed that the B4245 remains at 40mph

    Re: Speed limit to be lowered to 20mph in Wales

    What I didn't realise was the local authorities have the powers to override the 20mph speed limit on roads where they see fit.So if they think a road is better off at thirty they can adjust accordingly without recourse to the WAG.
