To consider the introduction of a 50mph speed limit on A332 Swinley Road, Winkfield


       i.         That the formal objections received during the statutory consultation process and the corresponding Officer comments are noted.

Reasons for the decision:

An analysis of personal injury accidents occurring on A332 Swinley Road has shown

a number of accidents where speed could be considered as a factor including one

fatality. Speed surveys have shown that a 50mph speed limit on A332 Swinley Road

would be in line with current Department of Transport guidelines.

Alternative options considered:

To not install a lower speed limit would likely result in the continuation of personal injury accidents where speed may be considered as a factor.
