A 20mph speed limit applies once more in Uckfield town centre now that new speed limit signs have been unveiled.
A temporary limit was put in place in September 2016 following works to improve the High Street, but signs were removed in January this year when it was realised an oversight meant a draft Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) was not advertised.
Now the official process has been completed and the speed limit applies along the High Street from a point north of the Church Street junction to a point south of the junction with Mill Drove.
The limit extends into Church Street, Regeny Close and Puddingcake Lane, Hempstead Road, Library Way, Civic Approach, Bell Lane, River Way and Bell Walk. See the map below.
The aim of the speed limit is to improve road safety, the living environment on the High Street and surrounding area, and travelling conditions for pedestrians and cyclists, so encouraging more walking and use of cycles.
