Transport for London (TfL) has today announced it will introduce 20mph limits for drivers within the Congestion Charge Zone from early 2020.

The new speed restriction will affect Victoria and Albert Embankments, Millbank, Tower Hill, Blackfriars Road and more.

In response, Chair of the London Assembly Transport Committee, Florence Eshalomi AM, said:

“With the recent rise in road deaths, this is a good start from the Mayor and TfL but much more needs to be done to protect pedestrians and cyclists.”

“Our roads will be made safer by reducing speed limits.

“TfL took on board the Transport Committee’s advice in the  Hostile Streets’ report to review all the speed limits on its roads.

“However, we suggest the Mayor considers going further to areas outside of the Congestion Charge Zone where walking and cycling should be safer.

 

“Every life lost on the road is tragedy. Particularly when the cause is a driver not obeying the speed limit.
