The Welsh Senedd will today vote on the Restricted Roads Order, which would impose reduced speed limits in built-up areas across the whole of Wales from 30mph to 20mph.
Commenting, Welsh Shadow Minister for Transport, Natasha Ashgar MS, said, “The Welsh Conservatives are not against introducing 20mph speed limits outside schools, playgrounds, places of worship and high streets, but a blanket roll-out is quite frankly ludicrous.
“With a price tag of more than £32 million, is this really money well spent at a time when the Labour Government should be focused on tackling the big issues at hand such as the cost-of-living? I don’t think it is, and I am sure residents across the country will be thinking the exact same.
“This is yet another diktat imposed by Labour from Cardiff Bay. “
