Marlborough – 20mph Speed Restrictions - A Consultation

20At the request of Wiltshire Council’s Community Area Transport Group which deals with local Highways issues, Marlborough Town Council helped to identify various areas in Marlborough to be considered for 20mph speed restrictions. Metrocounts (devices using 2 sensor tubes placed across the road logging data on vehicle volume, speed and classification) were placed on these roads and relevant data has been collected and analysed and recommendations put forward in a report produced by Wiltshire Council. A decision now has to be made about which of the proposals to take forward. Whether or not to implement 20 mph restrictions is important and our Councillors feel that the options presented in the report should be put out to public consultation.

You can read the report here:
1 - main written report Marlborough (A4 High Street, A346 & surrounding areas) 20mph Speed Restriction Assessment
2 - Appendices A-C - data collected
3 - Appendices D-E - options
