Introducing 20mph speed limits should be decided by local councils and for places such as outside of schools and playgrounds
Commenting on research surrounding the implementation of 20mph zones in Wales, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Transport, Natasha Asghar MS said:
“Introducing 20mph speed limits should be decided by local councils and for places such as outside of schools and playgrounds. The research is far from conclusive with studies having shown that 20mph limits could have a detrimental impact on issues such as public transport as the tight timetable that many busses run on could be affected.
“Labour have already admitted that this policy will come at an astonishing cost of £4.5bn to the Welsh economy, proving they are doing everything possible to stunt growth in Wales.
“Labour ministers need to stop imposing dogmatic and restrictive measures on road users in Wales and focus on making sure Wales has a public transport system fit for the 21st century.”
