Central Bruton’s 20mph speed limit is now complete. A big thank you to the Town Council, our County Councillor and the many people that have helped make this happen. Also thanks to the organisations, such as 20’s Plenty for Us, that laid the groundwork on a National level.
We want our streets to be safe for everyone. Children should be able to walk to school without risking their lives. We should be able to visit the shops and local cafes safely. Motorists should be able to park safely within the town and cycling should be encouraged. Traffic traveling at a constant speed, rather than braking and accelerating, produces less air pollution – something that benefits all Bruton’s residents. Slower traffic is also far quieter. A 20mph speed limit is a great step towards making all these a reality.
Please join us for a photograph to celebrate. We’re meeting on Friday the 10th March at 3:40 in Coombe Street. Everyone welcome.
