20mph on Lambeth’s roads

20mph jmA 20mph speed limit will be rolled out to all the roads in Lambeth, except for the red routes maintained by Transport for London (TfL) . TFL will fund the street signage and road markings. In neighbourhoods where, despite the signage, speed continues to be a problem the council will consider other calming measures such as humps in 2017/18.

Lower traffic speeds reduce accidents  and encourage more people to walk or cycle  helping to improve air quality.

    They will be putting speed bumps in my house next to slow me down and planting trees in the middle of the road (rather than just at the side….
