Proposed 30mph speed limit for the Parish of Oulton

Suffolk County Council proposes to introduce a 30mph speed limit on Hall Lane, Wood Lane and Holly Hill, Oulton

 These generally narrow, rural roads contain numerous field accesses and private driveways, with restricted visibility in places. There is a high concentration of stables in the area and therefore, horse riders frequently use these roads.

The introduction of this new 30mph speed limit is intended to avoid danger to persons or other traffic using the road, by reducing the speed limit and improving safety conditions for all road users.

Suffolk County Council proposes to make the above-named order for Oulton under Section 84(1) (a) and (2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended. The effect of this would be to introduce a 30 mph speed limit on:                           

  • Holly Hill from its junction with the Wood Lane and Hall Lane for 213 metres in a southwesterly direction;
  • Wood Lane from its junction with Hall Lane and Holly Hill to its junction with Queens Highway; and,
  • Hall Lane from a point 15 metres west of its junction with the B1074 to its junction with Holly Hill and Wood Lane.
