Shrewsbury Copthorne and Porthill 20mph zone consultation launched

A four-week public consultation exercise has been launched by Shropshire Council to see whether there is support for implementing a pilot 20mph speed limit zone in the Copthorne and Porthill area of Shrewsbury.

At their meeting on 8 June [2022] the council’s Cabinet agreed that the proposals go out to public consultation with a view to introducing the 20mph zone for an initial period of up to eighteen months, if there is public support.

The proposals seek to introduce a 20mph speed limit, replacing the existing 30mph speed limit on the residential roads within (and inclusive of) The Mount (A458) from its junction with Richmond Road, the whole length of Porthill Road (A488) and (but not including) Shelton Road.
