Highcliffe and Winnall 20mph speed limits

Press Release: 19/05/2014

Winnall, now 20mph

New 20mph speed limits for Highcliffe and Winnall are now in place.

The two areas of Winchester are part of Hampshire County Council’s residential 20mph pilot schemes.

Potential sites for these trials were nominated by councillors across the county, resulting in nine trial residential areas. Winchester City Council was given the go-ahead for schemes in Highcliffe and Winnall.

Signs marking the entrance and exits of the zones in Highcliffe and Winnall are now in place and 20mph roundels, which are painted on the road, will enforce the speed limit throughout the residential areas.

The aim of the trial is to improve safety by reducing speed and to make Winchester city centre an even more pleasant place in which to live, walk and cycle.
