Dovenby Speed Limit Proposal

01/05/2021

Cumbria County Council Proposal - A594 Dovenby - Speed Limit Reduction

The proposed changes are to reduce part of the existing 50mph speed limit to 40mph, through the village of Dovenby. This proposal comes as a result of an independent Engineering Safety Study carried out along the A594 Dovenby considering its history of collisions and their associated causation factors. The study indicated that a reduction in speed limit would help to prevent these types of collisions from occurring as frequently, should it be introduced.

This proposal does NOTinclude the Dovenby Craggs crossroads giving the access to Tallentire.

It has been suggested that the speed limit could also include the Tallentire turning at Dovenby Craggs.
