20mph pilot scheme – Roath and Cathays

Cardiff Council have launched a consultation this week for a proposed pilot area for 20mph speed limits in areas of Cathays and Plasnewydd, which is being funded by Welsh Government through the Safer Routes in Communities project.

It is hoped that, as well as improving road safety and reducing the numbers of those killed or seriously injured on Cardiff roads, introducing 20mph speed limits will also make it easier for people to walk and cycle in the city and create a more sociable environment for people to live. The proposed project in Cardiff will be a ‘signs-only’ scheme. If the proposal is supported by local residents, 20mph limits are likely to be implemented in March 2014.

What do you think of this proposal? Cardiff Council would like local residents to let them know! An online survey can be found here:

Further details of the proposed pilot are available on our website, along with a map of the proposed areas, dates of public consultation sessions, FAQ, and links to more information on 20mph speed limits and campaigns in the UK.

The closing date for this round of public consultation is 12th August 2013 – please complete the survey before this date.
