Harmonised signage for Herts 20mph

26 June 2020

Hertfordshire County Council is setting a consistent policy for signage in its 20mph areas, to reduce public confusion. National policy distinguishes between 20mph limits, which require signs every 200 metres but no traffic calming, and 20mph zones, which are self-enforcing areas with engineering measures every 100 metres and limited signage. “To avoid confusion between the two national definitions (limits and zones) the proposal is to use the collective term 20mph ‘areas’,” says Hertfordshire. “Whilst these will be designed in accordance with national guidelines, there will be a speed limit sign [or roundel] at least every 200 metres within these 20mph areas.”
