  • Thank you for your enquiry. Our police colleagues have now obtained and analysed some speed and volume data from Montague Street. This was collected over a continuous 7 day period and involved 77,000 vehicle movements. The 85th percentile speed recorded was 29mph. This is the speed at which, or below, 85% of all vehicles are travelling. The average speed of all vehicles was 25mph. It is therefore apparent that the vast majority of vehicles are travelling within the posted speed limit and would therefore not be a matter for police enforcement or engineering interventions.
