A city-wide 20mph speed limit in Cambridge is a step-closer after it was announced the next stage of limits could be in place by March.

The council said it was pushing ahead with plans to reduce speeds right across Cambridge, with residents in the south, west and centre of the city also to be consulted about lower limits in their area within the next few weeks.

At present limits range from 20 to 40mph. For the moment A and B roads like Huntingdon Road would be exempt, but residents are already demanding that busy Victoria Road, which is an A route, should have its limit cut to 20.

In recent years many schemes have been implemented in an attempt to curb speeding and make the city's roads safer.

The scheme's costing £600,000 pounds and by 2016 all local roads should have the lower limit.
