    Sadly I doubt it. I also doubt it will be temporary too. Speed limits rarely go up. I have a feeling we will be told that “The reduction in nitrogen dioxide was such a Great Success that we have decided to make the reduction permanent”

    I assume that this limit will be advisory?

    Of course it won’t. It’ll be another compulsory limit and tax-collecting ruse.

    Hopefully it will be made permanent and they’ll look at reducing the limits on other roads too, like the Llanypwll Link road for instance.

    This stretch of road runs alongside green fields that could be used for building houses on in the LDP. Imagine planning turning it down for housing on the grounds of, high nitrogen dioxide levels. Using this reasoning the speed restriction could become permanent. Who knows?

    Ohhh no thank you. An enforced minimum speed would be good, to stop people who consistently drive 20mph under the speed limit thinking they are heroes, when in reality these zombie drivers would fail a driving test for doing so. I remember my driving instructor teaching me that driving too slowly is dangerous as you cause other road users to become frustrated which, as per human nature, can cause them to make rash decisions.

    Either way, people have varying ideas and neither will convince the other they are wrong. People should drive to the conditions of the road they are on. Yes sometimes this means slower, but only if the situation warrants it, not just holding up traffic because they think they know better.

    Agreed, all the Mr McGoo types who join the A483 at 40mph and wait for the very end of the slip road to Force merge – as in they are coming into that lane even if a lorry is tearing it at them – forcing both people in the adjoining lane and the people joining behind them at the usual merge speed all having to take evasive action by braking sharply or moving over and causing the fast lane to break sharply as well. Then they will crawl down the 483 at 45mph and exit at the next junction which means they could have just stayed on the normal town roads and done everyone a favour.

    You’d be assuming incorrectly. They will be enforceable.

    Speed limits are for wimps.
    All of my vehicles are registered in Bulgaria and Romania.
    You know it makes sense.

    Keep ’em peeled.

    Everyone should drive at 50 mph in third gear along there and the air quality will worsen. Then the limit will be removed.

    Speed limit in place for 18 months.
