The Nottinghamshire County Council (Cotgrave Road, Clipston and Plumtree Road, Cotgrave) (50 M.P.H. Speed Limit) Order 2018) (8280)

Closed 9 Nov 2018

Opened 5 Oct 2018


The proposed 50mph speed limit is being introduced to help reduce the speed of traffic. We try to follow National guidelines when setting local speed limits so that there is consistency across the country. This means setting local speed limits that will be obeyed by the vast majority of drivers because they can see from the road conditions and environment that it would be too risky to travel any faster. The proposed 50mph speed limits reflects national guidelines which recommend that speed limits be set at the average speed of traffic.  Additionally the lower speed limit will help to reduce the risks to vulnerable road users, especially cyclists.
