Assembly response to 20mph speed limits in central London

Transport for London (TfL) has today announced it wants certain areas in central London to have 20mph limits for drivers from next May.

Areas such as Victoria and Albert Embankments, Millbank, Tower Hill and Blackfriars Road will be affected.

 

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

 

“In our ‘Hostile Streets’ report, the Transport Committee asked TfL to review all the speed limits on its roads.

 

“The Committee believes the Mayor could be more ambitious and think about areas outside of the Congestion Charge Zone where walking and cycling could be utilised even more.

 

It is not acceptable that we are still seeing deaths on London’s roads because of drivers not obeying the speed limit. This is a start from the Mayor and TfL and more needs to be done to protect pedestrians and cyclists.”
