“20mph speed limits could cost £25,000”

CHESHIRE West and Chester Council has published the list of Frodsham roads on which it proposes to impose 20mph speed limits.
They have not published the cost – but Frodsham councillor Andrew Dawson believes it will be more than £25,000.
Residents were given until September 28 to comment on the proposals, which means that many people – particularly those without internet access – will not know about them until it is too late to comment anyway.
Cllr Dawson says most residential roads will be signed as 20mph roads – and he accepts that most are not controversial.
But data collected by CWaC itself shows that most drivers don’t travel at more than 20mph anway.
“Changing the speed limit merely reflects what most of us are already doing in any event,” he said.
But he queries the inclusion on the list of Howey Lane, which is already subject to traffic calming.
He also draws attention to short lengths of road – such as Foxglove Close, off Fluin Lane – where it is doubtful if it possible to reach 20mph anyway.
Then there are roads like Top Road, Overton Drive and Newlands Close that are not part of the schemes.
Cllr Dawson adds: “I don’t have the exact figures for how much these schemes will cost. But I would suggest at least around £25,000 or even more.
“So if you had £25,000 to spend on road safety schemes in Frodsham – would you choose putting your money into 20mph signs on roads where those speeds are not exceeded or something else?
“I know many people want to see a pelican crossing on Bridge Lane by the Chinese Delight.  That would cost a little more than £25,000.  Or what about spending that money on putting in a pavement on Manley Road around Newlands Close?

“Would you put the £25,000 on bringing a quality CCTV system to Frodsham?”
CWaC has divided Frodsham into four area for the purposes of making Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) to allow the 20mph limits to be imposed. Anyone wishing to comment should quote the appropriate TRO number. The list is as follows:
