Speed limit could change along busy route

The speed limit on a busy road could be reduced in an attempt to reduce the number of collisions.

Swindon Borough Council is to consider reducing the speed limit on Queen's Drive from 40mph to 30mph.

A study of traffic incidents revealed 37 reported collisions along the route between February 2018 and January 2023.

Councillor Chris Watts said: "We want to make our roads as safe as possible for both pedestrians and motorists and that is especially true of Queens Drive, which is one of Swindon’s busiest strategic arterial routes."

"Councillors were very concerned about recent collisions along Queens Drive when considering the number of pupils who regularly cross the road to get to neighbouring schools," he added.

A meeting to discuss the proposal will be held on 7 February.
