The authorized speed on the section of Boulevard Laurent Bonnevay in Lyon drops to 50 km / h from November 2 …
It had already gone from 90 km / h to 70 km / h. From now on, the authorized speed on Boulevard Laurent Bonnevay in Lyon (the outskirts, in this case) drops to 50 km / h …
This is the decision of the Lyon Metropolis.
Explanation: “Securing the most accident-prone road axes is one of the priorities of the Métropole de Lyon. This security involves reducing the authorized speed. The City of Villeurbanne and the Metropolis will lower the authorized speed from 70 to 50 km / h on the section of Boulevard Laurent Bonnevay located along Feyssine Park, between the ring road and the Charles de Gaulle quay.
And to add: “This sector which runs along the Doua campus and the Feyssine park is frequented by very many students and walkers. It was therefore important, for the Metropolis and the City of Villeurbanne, to do everything possible to educate and calm traffic in this sector as it does in the Metropolis on the most accident-prone roads in the territory.
The Prefect having given a favorable opinion to this evolution, the Metropolis of Lyon will publish a decree, recording the passage to 50 km / h from Tuesday, November 2.
Regulatory signs and road markings will be installed on this section of Boulevard Laurent Bonnevay, to warn motorists of this change.
Educational radars will be set up for a few weeks to raise awareness of the change in regulations. At the same time, the sequencing of the lights on this section will be modified to take into account the lowering of the authorized speed.
