20mph zones could be introduced in Milton Keynes town in bid to 'boost road safety'

    Residents in an area of Milton Keynes could see multiple 30mph zones lowered to 20 as consultations currently take place.

    Milton Keynes City Council has shared proposals to introduce 20mph zones in residential parts of Bletchley, Milton Keynes.

    If approved, the following roads would be reduced from 30mph to 20:

    • The entire lengths of Baccara Grove, Bettina Grove, Celina Close, Chestnut Crescent, Clifford Avenue, Doreen Close, Frensham Drive, Hazel Grove, Mossmans Close, Saffron Street, Sunset Close and Willow Way
    • Brooklands Road, from its junction with Water Eaton Road to its junction with Findlay Way
    • Hunter Drive, from its junction with Water Eaton Road to number 67 Hunter Drive
    • Water Eaton Road, from its junction with Manor Road to its junction with Duncombe Street
    • Windsor Street, from its junction with Water Eaton Road to its junction with Osbourne Street

    Labour Ward Councillor Emily Darlington, who represents Bletchley East, has welcomed the proposals, saying: “I welcome the proposals to reduce the speed limit in these built up, residential parts of Bletchley. Introducing 20mph zones would make the area safer for local families and encourage people to walk or cycle, rather than using the car.

    "I regularly hear residents’ concerns about cars zooming through the estate, so I’m pleased to see the City Council is taking action to make Bletchley a safer place for all.”

    As well as this, the City Council also unveiled proposals to introduce a 7.5 tonne weight restriction for vehicles, except for delivery access, on Duncombe Street and Water Eaton Road.
