STATEMENT OF REASONS
All County roads that are assigned the national speed limit have been reviewed to identify those with an accident rate higher than the national average. As a result of this Langton Road and Kibworth Road have been identified to have a total number of accidents above the national average. Therefore, in order to increase general safety and reduce the accident rate, the County Council proposes to reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 50mph.
This order will see the implementation of 50mph speed limit on the following streets; C5402 Langton Road & Kibworth Road, Kibworth Harcourt, Tur Langton.
