As you know, there is a 20 mph zone through Barton. We have been monitoring speeds with our MVAS sign which is positioned at the bend beyond Kings Grove just before the school. We have data there from 2022 when the speed limit was 30 mph so we can see if 20 mph is making any difference. The results are mixed in that the average speed has dropped by 2 to 3 mph but the v85 speed remains the same.
