A343 Andover Road 40mph revocation

Statutory consultation on the revocation of the 40mph speed limit order


This consultation is closed


This proposal was approved at the Speed Limit Review on 9 October 2019 and we would like your views on it. This order is necessary in the interests of road safety to reduce the speed of traffic on the southern section of the A343. The Order will form a consistent method of speed management along the main road through Wash Common. By revoking (part of) the pdf icon current 40mph speed limit [38kb] the legal speed limit will default to 30mph by virtue of existing street lighting. 

A  pdf icon plan of the proposal [678kb] is a available, along with a copy of the pdf icon consultation [288kb].  If objections are received they will be investigated and a report prepared for the Executive Member for Highways and Transport to consider what action to take under Individual Decision and whether to proceed with the proposal as advertised. 

You can comment or object to the proposals by completing the doc icon comment form [235kb] and returning it to the Traffic and Road Safety Team by 18 February 2021.
