Transport for London launches consultation on lower speed limits in London

Transport for London (TfL) has launched a consultation on plans to introduce lower speed limits on all TfL roads in the Congestion Charge Zone (CCZ) by May 2020.

The proposal comes as part of the Mayor’s Vision Zero ambition to eliminate death and serious injury across all London transport. The proposed regulation will see a 20mph speed limit implemented on 8.9km of main roads including Millbank, Albert Embankment, Victoria Embankment and Borough High Street.

Additionally, a 20mph limit will be introduced at Aldgate Gyratory (the boundary of the congestion zone).

As well as the new 20mph signs and road markings, TfL plans to raise the height of pedestrian crossings in seven high-risk locations which see a high number of pedestrians, such as outside the Tate Britain.

Speed cameras on all of the affected TfL roads will be recalibrated to 20mph.

The consultation will run until 10 July 2019.
