20 mph scheme for residential roads in Henleaze - part of a roll out throughout the city - is expected to be introduced by July-August this year.
The only roads likely to remain 30 mph are Westbury Road, the dual carriageway stretch of Henleaze Road, Southmead Road apart from the section by the hospital, Kellaway Avenue and Wellington Hill West.
With a consultation period on the scheme now over (it ended on October 25th) the council are currently considering comments received and whether any changes are called for. Once the proposal has been finalised the process for creating a Speed Limit Order (SLO) will begin.
There will be a formal consultation as part of the process. Simon Tomlinson, the Neighbourhood Partnership Transport Representative, told a recent Henleaze Forum that the intention was for the scheme to be “self enforcing”. He said pilot schemes elsewhere in the city had resulted in a reduction in speed.
Bristol will be joining a growing list of cities with 20 mph on residential roads.
