Issue details

Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 Lancashire County Council (County Road, High Lane and Holborn Hill, Ormskirk, Liverpool Road and Northway, Aughton, West Lancashire Borough) (Revocations, 40mph Speed Limit and Derestriction) Order 201*

This report sets out proposals to reduce the existing 40mph speed limit on lengths of County Road and High Lane to 30mph by removing the present restrictions on these lengths of road so that they become restricted roads by virtue of the street lighting and subject to a 30mph speed limit.


A proposal has been advertised and public consultation has taken place which generated a large number of representations and one objection. It is considered that in order to implement the proposal effectively, it will be necessary to make changes to the road layout predominantly through new traffic signing and road marking.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.
