Title of Scheme

Cross Houses – Changes to the Speed Limit


The changes to the length of the 30mph on the A458 are part of the planning agreement for the housing development by Fletcher Homes. The change of speed limit from 40 to 30 mph along the road to Berrington will reduce sign clutter.

The other changes to the speed limit are to consolidate/tidy up the order for Cross Houses so as to include those lengths not previously covered.
