Have your say on 20mph zones

Release Date: 31 August 2017

Residents in Grasmere Avenue, Wills Crescent, Old Manor Drive and Whitton Manor Drive are being asked for their views on introducing 20mph speed limits and zones in their area.

The changes are being considered following a decision by Hounslow Council to introduce a borough-wide 20mph rule.

Cllr Peter Buckwell, Cabinet Member for Highways and Street Scene said:

“These cul-de-sacs will be affected by Hounslow Council’s decision to alter speed limits as they join directly onto Hounslow Roads where the speed limits are being changed.

If residents support the change, we will work with Hounslow to advertise the traffic order – the legal document required to change speed limits – and implement the scheme.

There will be minimal disruption as the change only requires 20mph signs to be painted onto the road surface at various locations and no additional signage would be required.”

Have your say online - the consultation closes on 29 September 2017.
