OUR JULY MEETING DETAILS

 

 
Thursday 21st July 2022
 

7.30pm

(45-minute presentation, followed by an audience Q&A)

 
20's Plenty for Us

at The Left Bank main building beside the Old Bridge

Rod King, Founder and Campaign Director, 20’s Plenty for Us and Professor John Whitelegg (visiting Professor of Sustainable Transport at Liverpool John Moores University and Professor of Sustainable Development at University of York's Stockholm Environment Institute) will set out the case for an urban speed limit of 20mph.

By way of background:
Hereford City Council and Herefordshire Council passed motions on 3rd and 6th March 2020 respectively to ask the executive to progress the introduction of area-wide 20mph speed limits across Herefordshire’s towns and major villages. During the initial coronavirus pandemic, temporary 20mph speed limits were introduced in some areas, but these have now reverted.   In October 2021, a 20 mph limit was introduced on the A44/ adjacent roads in Pembridge.

The Welsh Government plan to introduce legislation in 2023 to introduce a limit of 20mph on all urban and village roads.  Scotland similarly by 2025.  Spain in 2021 set a national urban 30km/h (18.64mph) limit.

We cordially invite you to a 45-minute presentation, followed by an audience Q&A.  The Lecture will start promptly at 7.30pm.  We look forward to you joining us. 

 

 

We look forward to seeing you
