20mph receiving high levels of support

As 20mph speed limits start to come into place in the wider Chesterton area following earlier consultation, the City's East Area committee met last week and reviewed the proposals for phase 2 in the east of the city which met with overwhelming public support.

That's the area roughly east of East Road out to Cherry Hinton Hall, (but not including Cherry Hinton village) and from the river in the north to Cherry Hinton Road and Hills Road in the south. (Map and consultation leaflet). Another step in introducing 20mph speed limits city-wide. 

Results of the consultations were overwhelmingly positive with nearly three-quarters in favour of slower traffic in most roads. As in Chesterton, the results were less for the busier roads, though strong for the remaining part of Mill Road. It looks like Cherry Hinton Road may be included, especially the City end, but probably not Coldhams Lane.
