New speed limit on dual carriageway

By a County Press reporter

Wednesday, July 23, 2014


A TEMPORARY speed limit reduction will come into force on the Cowes-bound section of the Medina Way dual carriageway after a barrier was damaged following a crash.

The 40mph limit was brought into force after it was decided the damaged barrier, which is still in place, was deemed insufficient to restrain vehicles travelling at the national speed limit.

Island Roads did not give a fixed date for when the restriction would end and said it would remain in force until the barrier was repaired.

Speed limits on the southbound section of the dual carriageway, towards Newport, remain unaffected, a spokesman said.
