A SPEED limit of 40mph will be introduced along part of a road which runs through Overton.

Overton Parish Council has received acknowledgement that the 40mph limit will be implemented on the B3400 to the east of the village from the existing 30mph limit, just east of Two Gate Meadow, to the point between Berrydown Court and Berrydown Garage.

The council is also requesting for a speed limit to be applied to Straight Lane and Berrydown Lane.
