FOI Request Default Speed Limits

Request 101001716936

As you may be aware Mark Ruskell MSP recently finished consulting on a member’s bill proposal to change the default speed limit on restricted roads from 30mph to 20mph.

Could your council provide us with a list of roads in your council area that would be affected by such a change? Furthermore, are you aware of many Restricted / Class A / B / unclassified roads are in your council area? Finally, should this bill pass are you aware of how many restricted roads your council would wish to retain the 30mph speed limit?

1. While we have analysed the implications of the members bill in broad terms we have not carried in depth work due to lack of resources, so cannot provide a list of roads which would be affected by such change.

2. Again we have not quantified " Restricted / Class A / B / unclassified roads" in our area or how many restricted roads would be affected as the detail of work is beyond our current capacity.

3. What we can identify is that approximately 287km would be affected by this proposal in Moray.
