A 20mph speed limit has been introduced on roads in Shrewsbury town centre but Ludlow is still waiting.

“Whilst the 20mph areas is good news for Shrewsbury it is disappointing that requests from Ludlow Town Council for additional 20 mph zones are ignored,” said Tim Gill, Mayor of Ludlow.

“There is much annoyance at the news and reinforces the feeling that Shropshire Council should be re-named Great Shrewsbury Council.”

After some initial reservations by some councillors the idea has the backing of Ludlow Town Council and of its Shropshire councillors.

Supporters of the move say that it would make roads safer.
