20MPH ZONES

Published: 04 June 2019

Leeds City Council have responded to our request to amend the 20mph plans for Collingham and Linton. They are not supportive of our wish to include Harewood Road in front of the school because "the speed of traffic is too high meaning engineered measures would be required to reduce the speed of vehicles. These measures are outside the scope of the programme".

​Leeds have confirmed that 20mph zones will only be installed where the average speed is expected to be less than 24mph, which may preclude those areas identified by residents as important for the 20mph zone such as Northgate Lane and Linton Lane. We will continue to try and bring some logical sense to this situation.
