Our key objective is the introduction of 20mph limits for all residential roads in Newport, with exceptions where appropriate.
We want to achieve this through default 20mph speed limits without traffic calming measures.
We want this to be implemented throughout Newport, and not through a 'Zone' or individual street approach.
We want safer streets for everyone - pedestrians, drivers and cyclists.
