Speed limit review looks likely to go before States next year

RECOMMENDATIONS on island speed limits are expected to go before the States next year, Environment has said.
The department has confirmed that it is well advanced with a project to review limits.
And as part of the discussions, it said the working group had looked at the use of vehicle-activated warning signs similar to the type installed around St Sampson’s High School. The announcement follows comments by traffic sergeant John Tostevin, who said he would like to see the signs placed around all the islands schools.
‘It would be practical to install this type of signage on the approaches to many schools adjoining major roads but it is clear that the widespread use of this type of sign would have significant budgetary implications for the department,’ said a spokesman.
