TFL to introduce 40 miles of 20mph speed limit schemes across the capital

Postby Community Editor » Fri Sep 15, 2023 2:26 pm

Transport for London will be rolling out 20mph speed limits across eight boroughs as part of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s vision to eliminate death and serious injury from the capital’s transport network. Read on for all you need to know.
New 20mph speed limits are being rolled out in eight London boroughs, in a scheme which covers 40 miles of road. These new restrictions will be introduced in Greenwich, Kensington, Chelsea, Lewisham, Southwark, Wandsworth, Merton, Bromley and Lambeth.

These new speed limits will be rolled out between September and December this year, with work getting underway soon to install new signage and road markings. Banners will also be hung from lamp posts to raise further awareness of the change.

TfL was aiming to deliver 87 miles of 20mph roads by May 2024, however it is now on target to complete this by the end of the year.

 A list has been published of all the roads affected by this new 20mph speed limit:
  • A3: Clapham Road, Kennington Park Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A3204: Kennington Lane (scheme to go live in December)
  • A203: Stockwell Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A23: Camberwell New Road, Streatham Hill, Streatham High Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A214: Tooting Bec Road (Scheme to go live in December)
  • A24: Clapham Common South Side, Balham High Road, Upper Tooting Road, High Street Colliers Wood (scheme to go live in December)
  • A205: Woolwich Common, South Circular Road, Catford Road, Stanstead Road, London Road, Thurlow Road, Christchurch Road, Poynders Road, Dulwich Common (scheme to go live in December)
  • A232: West Wickham High Street (scheme to go live in September)
  • A205: St John Wilson Street, Well Hall Road (scheme to go live in October)
  • A4: Cromwell Road, Brompton Road (scheme to go live in October)
  • A3220: Pembroke Road, Holland Road, Warwick Road, Redcliffe Gardens (scheme to go live in October)
  • A20: Eltham Road, Lee High Road, Lewisham Way (scheme to go live in November)
  • A202: Queens Road, Peckham High Street, Camberwell Church Street, Camberwell New Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A2: New Cross Road, Old Kent Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A201: New Kent Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A100: Tower Bridge Road (scheme to go live in December)
  • A200: Jamaica Road (scheme to go live in December)

So why is TfL doing this? Well it’s part of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s “Vision Zero” goal to eliminate death and serious injury on the capital’s roads, as well as make it safer and more appealing to walk or cycle instead of driving.

Commenting on the new reduced speed limits, Walking and Cycling Commissioner, Will Norman said: “Lowering speeds is one of the most important things we can do to reduce road danger and forms a key part of the Mayor’s Vision Zero goal to eliminate death and serious injury from London’s transport network.“TfL data shows that 20mph speed limits are reducing the number of collisions on London’s roads, which is why I’m pleased the 20mph programme has been expanded, helping to make a large area of south London safer and more attractive for people to live and work.”

If you feel strongly enough about all this money making rubbish and screwing up traffic flow TFL and councils are bringing out.might be a good idea to go here and pass this on to your friends to tell them what you think.
By the way don't forget to vote KHAN out at next election and save thousands a year if your car is not compliant.Even if it is road charging by the mile must be stopped before it starts!

Please find a petition on UK Gov website to stop local authorities (and hopefully TfL) from imposing 20 mph limits on major roads, like A23, A205, A3, A3205 etc. Link to petition
