Leicester City Council is proposing to introduce a 20mph speed limit on Morland Avenue and Grenfell Road. This is part of our commitment to improve road safety and encourage walking and cycling near to schools and in residential areas. The speed limit on these streets is currently 30 miles per hour. No further traffic calming measures are proposed.
