£64,000 for 20mph zones in Dorset towns

Dorset County Council has been given £64,000 today in Government funding announced for transport schemes. part of the money will go towards plans for a 20mph zone in Dorchester town centre.

“We’re serious about making transport better for the environment, whether that is by cutting carbon or improving air quality. Encouraging more people to cycle or use public transport makes sense for local economies, because it reduces congestion and improves public health. That’s why we’re providing record levels of funding for communities wanting to make their transport networks cleaner and greener.

“Today’s announcement comes hot on the heels of the £440 million we announced for sustainable transport schemes last month. This additional money will help communities to build on their success and see even more people making new travel choices.”

– BARONESS KRAMER, TRANSPORT MINISTER
