Petition Bassett Green Road - Reduce speed limit to 30 MPH

Local Lib Dems call for 30mph limit on Bassett Green Road

Lib Dem Bassett campaigner Richard Blackman is calling for the current 40mph limit between the Chilworth roundabout and the junction with Bassett Green Village to be reduced to 30mph.

Richard states: “Residents have expressed concerns about a number of near misses over the summer and autumn on this stretch of road”.

The speed limit on Bassett Avenue was reduced to 30mph over the summer. Richard Blackman believes this safer limit should apply to both Bassett Green Road and Bassett Wood Road. We need to calm the traffic for the benefit and safety of residents and the local environment.
