20's Plenty for Ely

Facts & Briefings

Fact sheets and briefing are available on a wide range of topics connected with 20mph limits on our national site at www.20splentyforus.org.uk/briefings.htm

Ely is a small city with many old and narrow streets and modern housing estates. Reducing the speed limit to 20 mph on all of these roads will improve the quality of life for all of Ely residents and in particular make cycling safer.

There is a national momentum to move to 20 mph ones in residential areas and we feel that Ely could be at the forefront of that.

The map below shows the area we think should be covered by 20mph limits. It would send a clear and simple message that it is the expected of drivers to go slow. We do realise there might have to be exceptions to the rule and some roads might have to stay 30mph, but we believe that should be the exception as most roads in Ely, including ‘trunk’ roads, are actually residential (Cambridge Road, Lynn Road etc) or have schools nearby (Downham Road, King’s Avenue).
