On 8 December 2014 the road safety charity Brake urged Bolton Council to step up efforts to implement 20 mph speed limits in residential streets.

Bolton Council voted last year to introduce a 20 mph limit in most residential roads across the borough, but say that progress has been stalled due to reductions in the council’s budget.

20s Plenty for Bolton has campaigned for 20 mph limits since 2011, and has argued that funding issues can be overcome if the will is there. Other towns have managed to implement 20 mph limits by accessing a variety of funding sources.

The road safety charity Brake is campaigning at the national level for the removal of restrictions that currently have cost implications for councils implementing 20 mph limits.
