Speed Limit in Elterwater, Cumbria

Volume 570: debated on Monday 11 November 2013

I wish to present a petition on behalf of residents of Elterwater, in Cumbria, in the Lake district. The petitioners are particularly concerned about the speeding through the Lake district village of Elterwater.

The petition states:

The Petition of a resident of the UK,

Declares that the Petitioner believes that the current speed limit of 60mph in Elterwater, Cumbria, is hazardous for local residents.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to change the speed limit in the area to 20mph, and introduce traffic calming measures.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
