Over the last year or so the St Brelade Roads Committee have been carrying out a review of all speed limits in St Brelade on both States and Parish administered roads.
Both the Committee and the Roads Committee had been contacted by several parishioners in regards to the speed limit on specific roads but the Committee took the decision to look at parish speed limits in an holistic way rather than individually, based both on standardised criteria set out by the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) and knowledge that the Committee have of all the roads within the Parish.
The review was completed recently and the view of the Roads Committee was that all parishioners should have the opportunity to comment on proposals before they are presented to the Minister for Infrastructure. A Parish Assembly was held on Wednesday 30 November 2016 at which the proposals were approved.
Connetable Steve Pallett said "It has to be wrong that our small parish by-roads have an unrealistic speed limit of 40mph. The Parish Roads Committee have, I believe, assessed all Parish roads based on both local knowledge and guidelines laid down by the Minister. I hope that parishioners will support the Roads Committee in making St Brelade a safer place to live and work."
