Leicester new 20mph zone is proposed

Residents are being asked for their views on a new 20mph zone in a Leicester residential area.

The city council wants to lower the speed limit in the Bradgate Heights area of Beaumont Leys.

The authority has an ongoing policy of making residential streets 20 mph zones in an effort to improve safety and air quality.

The consultation, including leaflets to households, will run for 4 weeks. The scheme will cover 19 streets.
