Grenoble is first French 30km/h city

  • January 6, 2016

Grenoble in France is the first large French city to introduce a blanket 30km/h zone across the city – reduced from 50km/h.

The measures, which came into force on 1 January, follow a large expansion of 30km/h zones in Paris and a similar scale change in Valencia in neighbouring Spain last year. Paris is expected to extend 30km/h zones across the city by 2020, and the Spanish government has also announced plans for 30km/h to be the default limit on urban roads.

ETSC has called on the EU to encourage all member states to adopt speed limits of maximum 30 km/h in residential areas and zones with large numbers of pedestrians and cyclists.
