Reducing the national speed limit on Fenn Lanes & Wharf Lane, Sutton Cheney

All County roads that are assigned the national speed limit have been reviewed to identify those with an accident rate higher than the national average. As a result of this review, Fenn Lanes and Wharf Lane have been identified to have a total number of accidents above the national average. Therefore, in order to increase general safety and reduce the accident rate, the County Council proposed to reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 50mph.
