20mph speed limits coming to residential roads in the West of York

City of York Council is beginning the roll out of 20mph speed limits in residential areas across the West of York.

Supported by headteachers in the West of York School’s Partnership and one of the UK’s leading health & well being mutuals, City of York Council is beginning the roll out of 20mph speed limits in residential areas across the West of York.

From this week signs will be installed over a two-month period on the smaller, residential roads across the West of the city and road users are asked to keep a look out for these and keep within the new speed limit – full details of the scheme can be found at www.york20mph.org.

Schools and businesses in the area will receive leaflets and information explaining the reasons behind the scheme and how this impacts them directly; these will also be available online to download.

The scheme is the first main phase of the policy to introduce 20mph speed limits in residential areas across the city to help promote considerate driving, make walking and cycling more attractive and raise confidence in the safety of local neighbourhoods, which builds on the wider city i-Travel York programme.
