Map showing 20 MPH limits is revealed

A map showing the new 20 MPH limits which will be implemented over the next three years has been released

The City of Cardiff Council has set out the vision to have 20 MPH limits in residential areas in Riverside, Canton, Gabalfa, Grangetown, Plasnewydd, Adamsdown, Penylan, Splott, Butetown and further upgrade the scheme in Cathays. 

Councillor Ramesh Patel, Cabinet Member for Planning, Transport and Sustainability said, “This scheme will have a host of benefits by improving public safety, improving the liveability of our streets, reducing the attractiveness of using residential streets as short cuts for drivers as well as encouraging walking and cycling. 

“We have devised a scheme after learning from other councils in the UK. The scheme will be delivered incrementally from the city centre out, ensuring that the new schemes implemented are immediately adjacent to areas that already have the 20MPH limits in place. This will provide continuity for drivers as well as cyclists and walkers using these areas. We intend to ensure primary routes in these wards will remain at 30MPH, with speeds in residential areas reducing to 20MPH. 

“The Council has liaised with the South Wales Police on the scheme to ensure they are fully briefed as we move forwards. The detail of each scheme will be consulted with local councillors and residents in these wards before we implement the scheme in each area. 

“We consulted on this scheme through the Ask Cardiff Survey for the last three years and most recently 71.2% of respondents endorsed the 20MPH restrictions. 

“Cardiff’s population continues to increase so we have to plan for this growth by encouraging more people to leave their car at home and consider using public transport, cycling or walking. This scheme is only part of our overall strategy to achieve this aim. We have to make alternative forms of transport more attractive and viable and this is what we are doing.”
