2. Safe Streets Save Lives
As part of the One Stockport campaign, we're working together to build a better future for everyone. We're using the government’s Safe Streets Save Lives grant to carry out work in district centres to make the local shopping area safer for everyone who uses it.
To make sure that residents can shop safely or visit pubs and restaurants in the district centres, we'll introduce and reinforce 20 mile per hour zones using the following measures:
• increased signage
• improved road markings
• temporary road cushions and barriers
These temporary measures will be introduced from 1 September 1 2020.
We expect the temporary scheme to be in place until Spring 2021. If local traders and residents like the arrangements then there's the option to make them permanent. A public consultation would take place before any decisions are made.
