20mph speed limits and zones
Our new Road Safety Strategy is based on a Safe Systems approach that focuses on preventing death and serious injury. It is built around 5 pillars of action aimed at supporting a holistic approach to delivery.
One of the 5 pillars is ‘Safe Speeds’ in recognition of the role speed has in minimising the severity of injury sustained in the event of a road traffic collision.
In conjunction with the adoption of a new Road Safety Strategy, we have also approved a new 20mph schemes policy.
A plan of all existing 20mph limits and zones in Swindon is available to download below:
If you feel a residential area may be appropriate for a 20mph scheme, contact your local Ward Councillors.
Any change to a speed limit will require an amendment to the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). Please see the Traffic regulation Order webpages for further information.
