A646 Burnley Road Speed Limit

What changes are proposed?

We are reducing the speed limit on the length of the A646 Burnley Road, Luddendenfoot between the junction with Ewood Drive, Mytholmroyd and Rock Cliffe Mount, Luddendenfoot. The speed limit will be reduced from 50mph to 40 mph.

The proposed order will also correct an anomaly found in the existing order in relation to the 30mph limit. This change merely replicates the existing signed 30mph section that already exists on street.

Why are the changes proposed?

The proposal is sought to improve the safety of traffic (including pedestrians) using the road following a number of reported injury accidents.

When the proposed order is advertised and how the public will know this?

The Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) will be advertised on Friday 14 October 2016.  Notices will be placed on site at the various locations.
