Welsh economy still set for £9bn hit thanks to 20mph

Responding to the news that Labour’s Transport Secretary, Ken Skates says that scrapping the 20mph altogether would be a “travesty”, Natasha Asghar MS, Shadow Transport Minister, said:

“It’s a real shame despite the Labour Cabinet Secretary for Transport’s recent PR tour, and extensive media coverage stating that ‘change’ would be coming the default speed limit in Wales will remain 20mph.

“Regardless of the apparent change of strategy, Labour’s 20mph speed limit scheme is still poised to deliver a £9bn blow to the Welsh economy whilst creating chaos for the lives of individuals, groups, and businesses across Wales.

“The Welsh Conservatives have been clear from the start, we would scrap 20mph, keep it where it is needed such as outside Schools, Hospitals, outside places of worship and on high streets. As our goal is to get Wales moving.”
