As a result of the support of the proposal, the City Mayor has approved the implementation of the scheme which is scheduled to come into force in spring 2020.


Leicester City Council is proposing to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph in the Wentworth Road area.

Why your views matter

The Transport Strategy Section is now consulting residents and other interested parties for their views on the proposed changes.  This consultation will be the basis on which the City Mayor will make his decision on whether to implement the scheme or not.
