EVINGTON VILLAGE PROPOSED 20MPH ZONE

Leicester City Council is proposing to introduce a 20mph zone around Evington Village. This includes the area outside Linden Primary School. It will mean changing the speed limit to 20 miles per hour and installing some traffic calming features.

Appendix B - Proposed Traffic Calming - Evington.pdf

 

At present the speed limit on these streets is 30 miles per hour and we would liketo reduce this to 20 miles per hour. By lowering speeds,the aim is to improve road safety, encourage walking and cycling,and create a calmer village feel in the area.

In 2015, following a petition from residents,we installed speed cushions outside Linden P rimary School on Headland Road. This was to reduce traffic speed and improve road safety.We are now proposing to install a small number of further traffic calming features where necessary to reduce speeds and improve road safety in the wider area. This involves speed cushions on The Common, part of St Denys Road,and one set of speed cushions on Evington Lane on the approach to theVillage.We would also like to put the existing Main Street pedestrian crossing on a flattopped road hump.

 The proposals are shown on the maps enclosed with this letter. There is a list of included streets and other information over the page.

We would like to know your views about these proposals.
