THE 20MPH speed limit is now being enforced at a road in Rhyl, following a review of driver behaviour and community feedback.

The new enforcement site is the A548 Russell Road/Rhyl Coast Road. Changes came into force on March 29.

Welsh Government introduced the changes following a review of driver behaviour, the response to previous changes, and evidence of road safety risk.

The speed limit on selected roads across Wales was reduced from 30mph to 20mph in September, with the move polarising the public and being met with both criticism and praise.

Go Safe, the body made up of Welsh local authorities, Welsh Police Forces, and the Welsh Government, made the decision as it engages with communities across Wales during Operation Ugain.

The body said: "Following the change in default speed limit, we have continued to review driver behaviour and the response to the change, whilst engaging with communities across Wales with Operation Ugain.

"We have continued to receive public requests for enforcement in their communities.

"These are assessed using our enforcement criteria and where appropriate, enforcement sites will be established where there is evidence of road safety risk."

"The locations have been assessed using the criteria and will now see enforcement introduced in the community from 29 March 2024."
