N E Lincs Council agrees to raise speed limit on key road

North East Lincolnshire Council has approved plans to raise the speed limit on the town stretch of Peaks Parkway from 30mph to 40mph

Councillors unanimously supported a recommendation made by a Cabinet working group set up to look into the issue earlier this year following a petition signed by almost 2,000 people calling for an increase to the limit.

The change will be to the 30mph zone from the traffic lights at B&Q to the 50mph zone past the Weelsby Road junction and should be in place by the end of October.

In addition, members also agreed to keep the average speed cameras in place in the area, along with a scrutiny panel looking into the consistency of the use of speed cameras across the borough.
