New electric sliding gates, as well as a rather unusual speed limit appeared in Newcastle’s Exhibition Park, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Electric gates have been installed at the vehicle entrance to the city centre green space, along with signs telling motorists to stick to 9 3/4mph.
James Cross, CEO of Urban Green Newcastle, which runs the city’s parks, said: “The new electronic gates have been installed to help manage vehicle access into the park, ensuring it remains safe for everyone.
“We have worked closely with businesses in the park, and associations and groups that use the park’s facilities, to ensure those that require vehicle access can use the license plate recognition software to gain entry.
“The decision on the park’s speed limit was reached as part of a broad consultation exercise that involved park users, local community groups and Friends of groups.
“Everyone agreed an eye catching and unusual speed limit would ensure more people noticed the speed restriction and adhered to it. It’s also a playful nod to Harry Potter.
“I’m glad to say it has been effective as a lot of people do notice and comment on it, which was the intention. It helps keep Exhibition Park a safe and welcoming place for all park users.”
