Just as we learn that Portsmouth City Council are working towards a 20mph speed limit throughout their city, and just three months after Darlington Cycling Campaign’s call for similar measures in our town were dismissed as too ambitious, I accidently come across a consultation process for Darlington and County Durham’s Speed Management Strategy.
Naturally enough, the Campaign was not alerted or informed about this consultation process, and the deadline for responses is today, June 4th. One of the key objectives of the proposed strategy, which is billed to run until 2011, is to reduce the risk to vulnerable road users. Hmm, wonder if that might mean cyclists?
If anyone can manage in the next couple of hours, you can email comments on the strategy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
