The A46 roundabout at Farndon will be limited to 40mph permanently


By Connor Thompson


A 40MPH speed limit approaching one of the town’s busiest roundabouts will be made permanent.

Work to install permanent 40mph signs at the A46 roundabout at Farndon will take place in early November.

Highways England project manager Edward Byrne said: “Temporary traffic signs reducing the speed limit at the roundabout to 40mph were introduced because of safety concerns.

“Safety is the priority for Highways England and, having reviewed the collision data, we believe the lower speed limit has contributed to a reduction in the number of incidents at this location.

“Therefore, we have carried out the necessary consultation, which included support from the police, and will now be installing permanent 40mph signs at the roundabout in early November.

"We appreciate people’s patience while this work takes place.”

The move was welcomed by Newark Town Council's planning committee.

Work takes place week commencing November 4.
