Runnymede 30 mph & 40 mph Speed Limits proposal

Closed 3 Dec 2021

Opened 5 Nov 2021


Thank you for your interest in our 30 mph & 40 mph Speed Limits proposal in Runnymede. 

The legislation we must follow before introducing this scheme means that we need to allow objections and comments from the public to be considered before a final decision is reached about whether or not to go ahead with our preferred scheme in its current form.

The proposal:

The imposition of lower speed limits can lead to a reduction in the number of road injury accidents if the speed limit is effective. Research published by the Department of the Environment, Transport and Regions (DETR) in ‘New Directions in Speed Management’ indicates that broadly each 1mph reduction in average speed can reduce accident frequency by up to 5%. The severity of injuries caused by accidents also increases with higher collision speeds.
