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 Long Lane, Wood Lane and Belvoir Road 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 speed limit will be reduced from 60mph to 50mph.
