At its December 2021 meeting, Saltford Parish Council resolved to respond to B&NES Council Traffic Regulation Order public consultation 21-023a.
Following discussion of the proposals (available here on the B&NES Council website) and specifically their safety benefits, Saltford Parish Council resolved its response, stating:
Saltford Parish Council strongly supports the proposals by B&NES Council to reduce the speed limit from 50mph to 40mph on the stretches of road identified in the TRO consultation. Saltford Parish Council welcomes these proposed changes, viewing them as a safety measure aiding the reduction of speeding as vehicles enter 30mph sections of road, and specifically the 30mph section of A4 in Saltford.
Saltford Parish Council submitted its response to B&NES Council on 8 December, prior to the consultation end date of 22 December 2021.
