Residents urged to have their say on plans for speed limits on city streets
A new set of streets has been earmarked for reduced speed limits.
Leicester City Council is considering imposing 20mph limits on roads on the Bradgate Heights estate, in Beaumont Leys.
The move would see 19 residential streets, totalling more than 2.5 kilometres, have their limits lowered from 30mph.
The changes would affect the whole length of Lady Hay Road, Strathern Close and Broombriggs Road, as well as roads to either side.

A public consultation on the scheme will begin on Monday.
Leaflets outlining the plans and the consultation will be given to residents in the streets.
People can also make their views known online.
A number of areas in the city have already been designated 20mph zones and similar schemes are planned for the areas around St Mary's Infant School, Rowley Fields, Woodstock Primary, in Beaumont Leys and Mowmacre Hill Primary.
Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said: "The pledge to make 20mph zones available where residents want them was a key manifesto pledge.
"Bradgate Heights is the latest on which we are consulting.
"I'd urge people to make their views known so we can ensure these schemes are designed around what residents want."
