We Asked

We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone for the Montrose School area.

You Said

We received six responses to the online consultation from outside the consultation area. Three responses were for both the proposed 20mph speed limit and the proposed traffic calming and three responses were both against the proposed 20mph speed limit and the proposed traffic calming.

A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 600 responses to this, representing a 25% response rate. Of these responses, 443 people (74%) were in favour of the 20mph speed limit and 340 (57%) were in favour of the proposed traffic calming.

We Did

As a result of the support for the proposal, the city mayor has approved implementation of the scheme which is scheduled to come into force in late spring 2019.

Overview

Leicester City Council is proposed to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on streets surrounding Montrose School.  To help reduce speeds, improve safety and discourage through traffic, we are proposing to install traffic calming on Aylestone Drive, Milligan Road, Burnaston Road, Alton Road, and Belvoir Drive East.  It is also proposed to extend the existing traffic calming on Wigston Lane towards Pork Pie Roundabout where existing speeds are high.

Why We Are Consulting

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.
