The Parish Council has been looking into having the whole of Iwade Village covered by a 20 mph speed limit; some parts are already 20 mph others are 30 mph. Back in the Summer Kent County Council undertook a traffic survey on the four entrances to the village; the results came back that there is not a highlighted vehicle speeding problem or identified (speed related) crash site in Iwade; the report indicated that the ‘mean speed’ for The Street was 23.4; Ferry Road 26.35; Sheppey Way 25.25; School Lane 23.55.
