Councillors at Cheadle Area Committee voted to give the Broadway 20mph zone the go-ahead.
This was a Lib Dem campaign, started last spring as a result of safety concerns around the Broadway area. In the consultation, 80% of residents told the Council they agreed with the scheme.
Although the Police don’t enforce 20mph zones in Greater Manchester, the evidence is that they can reduce speed significantly – which can be the difference between a minor injury and something much more serious.
The new zone will include Broadway, Daylesford Road, Daylesford Crescent and the roads off, linking up to High Grove Road which already has a 20mph speed limit in place.
