Lower speed limit welcomed on Croft House estate

01/11/2018

Morley Town Councillors have welcomed the introduction of a reduced 20 mph speed limit covering the Croft House estate, including King George Avenue and New Bank Street.  The reduced speed limit for the residential zone, which follows other similar scheme across Morley, was introduced on the 15th October 2018.

The Highways Authority at Leeds City Council is working through a programme to introduce 20 mph zones to all residential area.

Councillor Robert Finnigan, who represents this area said “We have been campaigning with residents for many years for this lower speed limit to be introduced into the area.  Lower speed mean safer roads and a reduction in the number of accidents and injuries suffered by motorists and pedestrians. We will be working with our colleagues in the Morley Neighbourhood Policing team to monitor the impact of these changes and to take enforcement against those motorists who do not comply with the new speed limit.  Slower roads keeps us all safe.”
