Saltford's 20 mph speed limit             

B&NES Council’s 20 mph Speed Limit Order came into operation on 17 April 2015, meaning that it is prohibited to drive a motor vehicle at a speed exceeding 20 miles per hour on all roads in Saltford except the A4, which remains 30 mph. 


A pothole is defined as a sharp edged depression in the carriageway greater than 30mm deep. To assist B&NES in repairing these as quickly as possible, please report any potholes to Council Connect tel. 01225 394041 or online via their Report It facility.
