Anger at speed zone comments

A SHEFFIELD Council Labour member has attacked the authority’s Liberal Democrat opposition leader for comments about 20mph zones.

Coun Jayne Dunn, who represents Broomhill, criticised fellow Broomhill member Coun Shaffaq Mohammed for calling on the council to increase the roll-out of the zones.

She said: “The Labour council approved a new policy to implement a new 20mph zone around schools in each Community Assembly last year, and to roll out further 20mph zones across all suitable residential areas thereafter, allocating an initial £280,000 for seven new zones to be put in place over two years.

“This was in stark contrast to the Lib Dems, who set no plan to roll out 20mph zones and allocated no money for it when they were in power.”
