Cambridge roads to benefit from 20mph speed limit

The north of Cambridge is set to have a 20mph speed limit introduced, in a bid to boost safety and encourage walking and cycling.

Cambridge-News has reported that Arbury, King's Hedges and the two Chesterton wards have been chosen because they are home to some of the area's most deprived neighbourhoods.

As a result, 20mph warning signs are set to be put up in January 2014, before the Abbey, Coleridge, Petersfield and Romsey areas benefit from them in the summer of that year.

Speaking to the news provider, councillor Tim Ward, the executive councillor for transport, said: "There are a number of little 20mph areas across the city which been put there in response to local campaigns."

Elsewhere, the Leighton Buzzard Observer has reported that new safety signs have been introduced on the A4012 stretch between Leighton and Hockliffe in an effort to lower the number of accidents on the road.

Ten fatal or serious incidents have happened on the five-mile long stretch between 2006 and 2010.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801520700-ADNFCR
