Safer, Greener, Healthier Basildon
Some new interim, signed 20mph speed limits on roads in busy shopping areas of Wickford and Billericay are being put in place starting from Monday 22 June.
In Billericay a 20mph zone will extend along the B1007 High St, from its junction with Sun Street/A129 London Road, northwards to its junction with Norsey Road/Western Road.
In Wickford, a 20mph zone will extend along High St, from its junction with A129 London Road, northwards to its junction with Wickford Station access road.
The new lower speed limits aim to encourage people to support their local businesses by increasing pedestrian and cyclist confidence when having to avoid other people, particularly where traffic is passing.
