Question 3 - we asked:

We believe that 20mph should be the norm for local streets in residential areas (as distinct from main connecting roads). 20mph would: greatly encourage walking and cycling; improve the quality of life in an area for residents; and would not delay car journeys significantly (because only the start/end of a journey would be affected). Do you agree that 20mph should become the norm for local streets in Cambridge and surrounding villages?

We asked this question:

2 of the 5 candidates (40%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Susannah KERR
(Liberal Democrat)

I fully support the ’20’s plenty’ campaign and am glad that the 20mph speed limit will soon cover the historic city centre. We must accept that narrow busy roads (with pedestrians, cyclists and cars) will not tolerate motorists that travel at any greater speed and I am confident that cyclists and pedestrians will benefit from this move. I would welcome extensions to this scheme in other areas of the city.

Peter BURKINSHAW
(UK Independence Party)

No
