20MPH: Proposals to introduce lower speed limit on Berkhamsted streets

 Published on: 23rd January 2023   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

Berkhamsted could see a 20mph speed limit introduced on a number of roads following a Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) proposal.

There are currently 20mph speed limits in part of the High Street and other areas, including Crossways, Greenway and Shrublands Avenue.

The new proposals would see the 20mph speed limit extended to 38 Berkhamsted streets, including Kings Road, Charles Street, Gossoms End, and Boxwell Road.

HCC hopes that introducing a lower speed limit will improve safety for all road users and reduce the likelihood of injury accidents. They stated that the changes will “encourage behavioural change where vehicles adopt appropriate speeds, creating an environment to encourage walking and cycling”.
