Welsh Government’s 20mph rollout across Wales

Nationwide rollout from 17 September 2023

20mph limits have been introduced in areas across Wales where people:

  • live
  • work
  • learn
  • play

Parts of the road network that retain a 30mph speed limit have new signs installed.

Roads that have remained 30mph have been determined using an ‘exceptions’ process, based on criteria such as:

  • lower density of housing
  • absence of schools and hospitals
  • other local factors

The Welsh Government is working closely with GoSafe and the Police to ensure that the new speed limits are respected and driver behaviour change is supported.

Frequently Asked Questions

Welsh Government have put together a list of frequently asked questions about the introduction of 20mph as the speed limit in residential areas.
