Introduction of a 20mph zone on Squires Lane

Back in April, I was made aware by LBB and TfL of the imminent introduction of a 20mph limit zone for vehicles travelling on Squires Lane from the junctions with Station Road and Rosemary Avenue over the bridge and onward to the A1000 High Road. I was initially advised this would be implemented over the Easter period (8-22 April) however, many constituents have noticed that the 20mph zone has still not been put in place. 

I have sought updates from LBB on the reasons for the delay and I have been told that, due to objections received, the scheme will unfortunately take longer than expected to implement, however the 20mph safety measures will be installed at the earliest opportunity.  

The introduction of the 20mph zone will improve the safety of this busy road for both drivers and pedestrians and I will continue to push the Council on introducing it as soon as possible.
