Colchester estate could become 20mph zone

RESIDENTS have welcomed plans to make their new housing estate a 20mph zone.
Essex County Council has launched a consultation to introduce the speed limit to the Solus estate, off Berechurch Hall Road, Colchester.
Mum-of-three Jo Aldous said: “I’m pleased. We’ve got two young girls trying to learn how to ride their bikes and a 13-year-old son who kicks a football around.
“They don’t expect cars to be driving so fast.”
The estate has recently been formally adopted by Essex County Council, six years after being built by Taylor Wimpey.
A formal consultation to introduce the limit on Agnes Silverside Close, Helen Ewing Place, James Gore Drive, James Parnell Drive, John Hammond Close, John Mace Road, Richard Day Walk, Rose Allen Avenue and William Harris Way is set to follow this spring.
