New Speed Limit Proposals


The following is a letter sent from Warwick District Council to Councillor Whitehouse, that has also been forwarded to residents:


16th January 2014


Dear  Cllr Whitehouse


Burton Green, Village Speed Limit Review – proposed 30mph speed limit and Traffic Calming


Warwickshire County Council is carrying out a review of the speed limits in Burton Green village. The review forms part of the County Council’s Transport Seminar funded works. Following a lengthy consultation with local residents and stakeholders, It is proposed to introduce a 30mph speed limit on Cromwell Lane, Hodgetts Lane and part of Red Lane in Burton Green.


It is also proposed that the priority on the road narrowing on Cromwell Lane (over the disused railway bridge) be reversed. Under the new proposals traffic travelling in a northbound direction towards Coventry will have to yield to southbound traffic, this is in line with the original scheme and will address local concerns regarding the speed of northbound traffic


An advisory part-time 20mph speed limit is to be signed on Hob Lane adjacent to Burton Green School.


Any enquiries relating to these proposals may be made to Richard Elbourne, Communities Group, Warwickshire County Council ( telephone number 01926 412076). Any objections to the proposals, which must be in writing and specify the grounds on which they are made, should be addressed to Richard Elbourne, Communities Group, Warwickshire County Council, PO Box 43, Shire Hall, Warwick, CV34 4SX. (Objections will normally be treated as public documents and may be communicated to other persons affected). Objections must be sent so as to be received by the 7th  February 2014.


Yours  sincerely
