40 Miles Per Hour Is The Correct Speed Limit For Westbury Road, Warminster

Wednesday 25th April 2018:

No Further Action To Be Taken With Regard Reducing The 40 mph Speed Limit At Westbury Road, Warminster.

Warminster Town Council's Town Development Committee discussed a variety of issued related to parking and speeding at its meeting on Monday 16th April 2018.


A request had been received to reduce the speed limit on Westbury Road, Warminster, within the town boundary
from 40 mph to 30 mph. A metro count had already been undertaken in this area and it did not meet the criteria set by Wiltshire Police for taking any further action. The advice from Wiltshire Council traffic engineers was that 40 mph was the correct speed for this stretch of road, with its open aspect,
street lighting and residential properties on one side only.
Warminster Town Council's Town Development Committee Members agreed not to take any further action.
