Experimental 20mph speed limit order: Chester - Grosvenor Road (decision notice)

Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council has decided to bring into force an experimental order whereby no person shall drive any vehicle at a speed exceeding 20 miles per hour on Grosvenor Road from a point 85 metres south of its junction with Grosvenor Roundabout to a point 40 metres north of its junction with Overleigh Roundabout.     

Reasons for the decision
  1. To reduce the speed of traffic travelling adjacent to the new experimental advisory cycle lanes which have been introduced across Grosvenor Bridge.
  2. There is a section of carriageway across the bridge where it is not possible to reallocate road space to cyclists and it is necessary for cyclists to rejoin other traffic.  
The reduced speed limit aims to provide a safer space for cyclists at this location. 

Date of decision: 28 September 2020
