Magpie Lane, Coleshill Proposed 30mph Speed Limit

Closed 14 Jun 2024

Opened 24 May 2024


Buckinghamshire Highways are proposing to extend the existing 30mph on Magpie Lane in Coleshill to cover the remaining section between Crosspath Cottages and Thatch Cottage (near the junction of the A355). 

We are seeking your views on the proposal.


The northern extents of Magpie Lane (from the junction with Chalk Hill and Windmill Hill to Crosspath Cottages) were reduced from the National Speed Limit (60mph) to 30mph following the 2007 County Wide Speed Limit. However, this did not include the remaining section, which was reduced to 40mph.

Note: In the map below, the section of Magpie Lane currently in a 30mph (denoted by a green border) is shown within a dashed black line border). The existing 40mph section is denoted by a blue border).

Subsequent speed assessment surveys undertaken by Buckinghamshire Council had deemed that the 40mph assigned to Magpie Lane is appropiate.

A long - standing desire by the Parish Council is to include the whole length of Magpie Lane into the 30mph speed limit.

What We Are Proposing

We are proposing to replace the existing 40mph speed limit on Magpie Lane with a 30mph speed limit. This will also include removing the terminal speed signs located near Crosspatch Cottages (as shown below in Figure 1):

Similarly, we would also be removing the 40mph signs near Thatch Cottage (see Figure 2) and replacing them with 30mph signs. The 40mph road marking will also be changed to reflect the transition from a 50mph to a 30mph:

Furthermore, we would also be replacing the 40mph repeater signs in between the terminal signs with 30mph repeaters as well.
