D58-2962 - A4109 Main Road, A4109 New Road, Aberdulais Roundabout, Access to Aberdulais Roundabout and B4434 from A4109 to Dulais Fach Road, Aberdulais

(Revocation) and (30mph Speed Limit) Order 2022

Statement of Reason

The Order is necessary to maintain the existing speed limit of 30 mph on selected strategic roads within the borough after the Welsh Government has passed legislation to implement a 20mph default speed limit in urban areas nationally throughout Wales in the interest of road safety.

The Council as Local Highway Authority considers that this road is a strategic route with higher volumes of daily traffic compared to urban residential streets and as such does not meet the criteria or the nature of a road with a speed limit of 20 mph.

The Council considers that the existing 30 mph speed limit is an appropriate speed limit in order to maintain a reasonable traffic flow on higher traffic volume strategic routes.

NOTICE is hereby given that the Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council in pursuance of its powers as contained in Section 84 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 intends to make a Speed Restriction Order the general effect of which is set out in the Schedule below.
