Anger over 30mph speed limit drop at Portman Rd

Published

By

As we mentioned back in September, Portman Rd has reduced the speed limit


Reading west motorists are angered by the Reading Council’s decision to lower the speed limit at Portmand road, where the 40mph limit has been replaced by a 30mph limit.

All the 40mph signs located at Portmand road has been removed but not replaced with 30mph which is giving drivers mixed messages about the correct speed limit on the road causing many being fined.

Some drivers have expressed concern there is no indication the speed limit has changed or signs highlighting the changes.
why wasn’t the temporary signage put up when the 40 signs taken down?
Allowing time for drivers to adjust?? So, why was there a police speed camera on Portman Road yesterday??

How are people supposed to know this who don’t have social media to say so? It’s a very confusing situation… what exactly is the time allowed for adjustment? What speed are the camera’s enforcing? In my view this transition has been very poorly organised.

@ReadingCouncil so it would appear that you delightful bunch have reduced Portman Road from a 40mph limit to a 30mph limit. Where are the signs on the road indicating that this has changed? That is proper sneaky!!!! There’s a reason everyone has such a low opinion of you lot

A council spokesman previously told us: “Portman Rd is now the national urban speed limit of 30mph, by virtue of the fact the 40mph signs have been removed. Only limits other than 30 are signed in urban areas. We will however put temporary signage in shortly. As with any speed change, time allowed for drivers to adjust.

As of today we have not seen any temporary signage at Portman Rd.

As another motorist told us this transition has been very poorly organised.”

The grass cutting services are designed to meet safety needs while providing value for money and increasing bio-diversity.

Scheduling grass cutting is a difficult balancing act, as growth is so dependent on seasonal factors, such as rain and sunshine.

However, nationally-recognised guidance suggests five cuts in urban areas would achieve a reasonable balance between maintaining the street scene and ensuring highway safety and this seesm to dont have been the case in some of ours roads.
