Permanent traffic order: Winsford - Swanlow Lane (50mph speed limit) (statement of reasons)
Permanent traffic order - statement of reasonsSwanlow Lane is a lower quality rural B road and serves mainly as a through route for traffic. The existing speed limit is 60 MPH (national speed limit).Darnhall Parish Council requested the introduction of a 50mph speed limit on Swanlow Lane from the existing 30mph speed limit to the borough boundary
The Speed Limit Assessment was undertaken in November 2015. The routes assessed are contained in the report. As per the report the recommendation is to change the speed limit along Swanlow Lane to 50MPH.
Following consultation with the properties along Swanlow Lane, all of the properties who replied supported a reduction in the speed limit.
The proposal meets the Department of Transport guidance on setting local speed limits and is supported by the Police, the Parish Councils and the local CWAC Members.
The scheme will be part funded by Cheshire West and Chester Highways and part funded by Darnhall Parish Council
