Speed Limits Consultation
17 January 2022
The consultation report on proposed changes to the traffic speeds in Westminster was released last week, with confirmation that the scheme will proceed. The consultation, carried out by Transport for London in July and August 2021, featured proposals to reduce the speed limits on some routes to 20mph, alongside additional measures.
The new 20mph speed limit will apply to 13km of roads within the borough, including Marylebone Road, Vauxhall Bridge Road and Edgware Road between the A40 and St. John’s Wood Road. In addition to this, there will be raised road ways at six existing pedestrian crossing locations on roads with newly lowered speed limits; new road signs throughout to ensure that all drivers are fully aware of the new speed limit; and the temporary 30mph limit on the A40 Westway and 20mph limits on Park Lane northbound and Grosvenor Road will become permanent.
The consultation received 224 responses in total including our own supportive response.
