Part time 20mph speed limit

We are pleased to let you know that the road outside the academy will be benefiting from a 20mph part-time speed limit.

Part-time 20mph speed limits 'when school lights show' is a sign which advises that a length of road in the vicinity of a school entrance should be driven at 20mph or less when the lights are on. The introduction of the proposed new speed limits will affect all users of the roads in each location. They are used on roads where the mean average speed is more than 24mph and are not suitable for mandatory 20mph speed limits or zones.

The exact times when the 20mph speed limits will be in operation is yet to be decided.  For more information see the article on the Durham County Council website.
