Welsh minister predicts 20mph limit “tweaks”

The minister responsible for transport in Wales is admitting there will be “tweaks” to the default 20mph speed limit introduced across the country’s residential roads this week.

Deputy Minister for Climate Change Lee Waters MS said he had “no doubt” there would be adjustments in the coming months.

He told ITV News “People are anxious – it’s a big change, and when you start driving at 20 it feels really slow,” Mr Waters said.

“But we’re doing it because the evidence is very clear this will have a significant impact on saving lives and reducing casualties and making our communities feel nicer to be around.”

The South Wales Argus newspaper reports Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Transport Natasha Asghar MS said the policy is part of Welsh Labour’s “anti-motorist” agenda.
