Paul. A quick read of the report leads me to thinking that this is exactly the sort of situation that needs attention. The suggestion is that all roads would be 20mph unless marked otherwise. This would then mean that all the narrower roads, country lanes etc would automatically be the 20mph without the need to signpost them all as such, while the larger arterial and straighter roads could have speed signs advising a faster speed limit as is the case now. In some areas they are even considering a 40mph limit. You rightly point out that cycling or walking on roads like The Coutanchez is dangerous. This is given as one of the reasons for the need to rationalise the present speed limit.
