Lancashire County Council is seeking permission to start work on reducing the speed limits on Station Lane, Broughton, Darkinson Lane, Lea and the area around Navigation Way on the Docks.

A report from the council states: “Lancashire County Council is committed to introducing 20mph speed limits in all main residential areas and outside all schools by 2013. The current policy within Lancashire is for the introduction of 20mph speed limits with signs only.”

The request to introduce speed limits on the three Preston roads have come from county councillors and Parish Councils.

Highways and transport officer will evaluate the need for 20mph limits and report back their findings in April 2013 for a detailed consultation to begin.

View the full report from the council and a list of all Lancashire locations being considered for 20mph speed limits.
