Help needed with a final push for a Reading wide 20 mph zone ahead of the #rdguk Traffic Committee

The agenda for the Traffic Committee is out and the small example 20 mph area proposed a few meetings ago has grown to a good sized area taking in a lot of East Reading and including all of Park Ward – item 11 on the agenda.

The map below shows the proposed area within the solid red and blue lines. The green areas are existing 20 mph zones.

We have been lobbying for 20 mph for a number of years to calm our roads down and create a safer or pleasant environment for walking and cycling – with some successes like the recent Talfourd to Holmes scheme.

But we would like to see a town wide approach in all residential areas. There is still time, ahead of the meeting on Tuesday, November 5, to sign our petition to encourage the Council to go for a town wide "big bang" approach.

We are also going to have a push collecting signatures on paper outside schools early next week. If you can help let me know – or 07985923938.

Please spread the word.
