Barton Road speed limit
In light of the recent news of a cyclist being injured by a motorist whilst on the off road cycle path on Barton Road (http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Cambridge/Driver-who-knocked-over-cyclist-keeps-his-licence-16012012.htm) I was wondering if the CCC is campaigning for a reduction in the speed limit along Barton Road? I think (but am not categorically sure) that Barton Road remains the last main road into Cambridge with a 60mph limit.
Barton Road suffers from two problems with speed: heading out of town motorists accelerate from 30 to 60 after the speed camera; and heading into town motorists are coming off the motorway and are used to such speeds and continue to drive way over the 60 limit.
According to the http://www.crashmap.co.uk/ Barton Road has seen several fatalities and many accidents recently.
