The Nottinghamshire County Council (B6031 Carter Lane, Warsop Vale) (40 m.p.h. Speed Limit) Order 2018 (2213)

Closed 11 Apr 2018

Opened 14 Mar 2018


The speed limit along the rural section of Carter Lane between Longster Lane and the Mercury Garage at the western extent of Warsop Vale is currently 30 m.p.h. It is considered that a speed limit of 30 m.p.h. through this rural environment is inappropriate and is more likely to result in reduced compliance of the 30 m.p.h. speed limit through the urban area of Warsop Vale.

Between 17th January and 14th February 2018, Via East Midlands Ltd consulted on proposals to relocate the start of the 30 m.p.h speed limit to a point just west of the Mercury Garage, at the edge of the urban area of Warsop Vale. The rural stretch of road from Longster Lane to this point would then have become the national speed limit of 60 m.p.h.

Following consideration of comments received during the consultation period, it has been decided to amend the proposals to introduce a speed limit of 40 m.p.h. between Longster Lane and the Mercury Garage, instead of 60 m.p.h.

The amended proposals are shown on drawing number H/JMR/2630/02.
