New Stourport store link road to be 30mph
A NEW road link built as part of the development of a superstore in Stourport should fall into line with the area’s 30mph speed limit, according to town councillors.
Stourport Town Council was responding to a consultation from Worcestershire County Council on the speed limit for the road, which will be unlit, and bridge built as part of the new Tesco store development due to open next year.
The link, between Severn Road and Discovery Way, has a proposed speed limit of 30mph but is yet to pass the criteria for adoption by the county council. This is expected in the autumn after new traffic lights on Severn Road have been tested and “any adjustments made”
Jon Fraser, county council customer and community manager, said: “The new road and bridge constructed as part of the Tesco’s development had been identified for a 30mph speed limit from the outset. Consultation on this speed limit has already started.
