Transport for London (TfL) is to press ahead with plans to introduce a 20mph speed limit on 13km of its roads in Westminster. This would include Marylebone Road, Vauxhall Bridge Road and Edgware Road between the A40 and St John's Wood Road.
Other changes would include installing raised tables at six existing pedestrian crossings on roads with newly lowered speed limits and making the temporary 30mph limit on the A40 Westway and temporary 20mph limits on Park Lane northbound and Grosvenor Road permanent.
Nearly half of London’s roads now have a 20mph speed limit. In March 2020, TfL introduced 20mph speed limits on all its roads in the central London Congestion Charging zone, completing the first lowering speeds action in the Mayor’s Vision Zero action plan. TfL said it has worked with the boroughs to deliver 20mph speed limits in nine town centres, including Whitechapel, Archway and Brixton.
The Vision Zero action plan sets the target of reducing the speed limit on a further 140km of TfL’s roads in the capital by 2024.
Other 20mph projects include the A23 corridor in Croydon, A13 corridor in Tower Hamlets, A107 corridor in Hackney and the A10 to A503 corridors in Haringey.
TfL has pledged to “enhance” the Metropolitan Police’s capacity to enable it to increase the number of speeding offences being enforced from 280,000 in 2020/21 to one million by 2024/25.
