Transport Group Meeting 28th June – 20mph Zone

Rod King from the national campaign “20’s plenty for us” will be talking in Wilmslow on Thursday 28th June at the Friends Meeting House in Bourne Street at 7.30pm. Rod has helped towns from Edinburgh to Plymouth go “20’s plenty” on residential roads, and has recently helped Crewe move towards safer and more pleasant streets. Essentially,

  • 20mph is safer than 30mph
  • You don’t need speed bumps to have 20mph
  • Everyone needs safer streets.

The meeting has been organised by Transition Wilmslow, along with Cycle Wilmslow and Living Streets, as a way of making our residential streets more friendly for all.

Everyone is welcome to the talk and we will be really interested to hear your views.

For more details of the event and the campaign, please see the attached event poster and leaflet.
