Laneham Road between Treswell and Dunham - Proposed 50mph Speed Limit

Closes 24 Oct 2022

Opened 22 Sep 2022

Overview

Via East Midlands Ltd, working on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council, is proposing to introduce a 50mph speed limit on Rampton Road and Laneham Road from the junction with Green Lane, Treswell to the existing 40mph speed limit in Dunham on Trent. The proposed 50mph speed limit would replace the existing National Speed Limit of 60mph.In addition to the 50mph speed limit on Laneham Road it is proposed to move the start of the 30mph speed limit on Main Street, Laneham, from its current position to the location of the first lamp column as you turn off Laneham Road. The 50mph speed limit would extend from Laneham Road to the start of the 30mph speed limits on Main Street, Stokeham; Main Street, Laneham and Dunham Road, Laneham.

The lower speed limit is being introduced as part of an accident reduction scheme. In a period between 2018 and 2021 there were 5 injury accidents recorded on Laneham Road. As well as lowering the speed limit there will be other works to ensure that the verge marker posts are replaced, where necessary, on all bends along Laneham Road.
