The Office for Statistics Regulation has today written to the Welsh Government about how it can better support users to understand the impacts on journey times given the introduction of the 20-mph speed limit on restricted roads in Wales.

In the future to better support users, OSR recommends that:

  • As part of planned monitoring, the Welsh Government and Transport for Wales should continue to review the evidence on journey times and cite the most appropriate evidence source when communicating the impact on journey times.
  • Analyst teams in the Welsh Government should continue to support and work with communications and policy colleagues in the preparation and presentation of data and statistics.
  • Transport for Wales, in conjunction with Welsh Government, should consider how it can make improvements to data and statistics on the implementation of the 20mph speed limit, including considering the accessibility of data and supporting information. Transport for Wales should seek feedback from users as it starts develops its new outputs.
