Registration is now open for the second live presentation taking place as part of Road Safety GB’s online cycling event.
The presentation, which commences at 2pm on Wednesday 23 June, is being facilitated by Natalie Grohmann, head of active travel policy, and Ian Bradfield, principal policy lead (roads), from the Welsh Government.
Natalie and Ian’s presentation is titled: a cycle-friendly Wales – transforming places in Wales through 20mph default speed limits and safe and convenient infrastructure.
In February 2021, plans for a default 20mph speed limit on Welsh roads moved a step closer, after the Welsh Government announced trials will take place in eight pilot areas.
The trials will get underway this summer and come ahead of the planned national rollout for April 2023.
Registration for the session is free-of-charge and now open. It is anticipated Natalie and Ian will present for around 20 minutes, before inviting questions from attendees.
This session will be recorded and made available at a later date for anyone unable to attend on the day.
Registration remains open for further sessions
