TfL is in the process of providing a new road safety camera for the east bound Lower Mortlake Road (A316), between Pagoda Avenue and Castlegate, to enforce the 30 mph speed limit. This camera is expected to be installed in mid July and to be operational by the end of the summer.TfL recently reviewed Lower Mortlake Road following a recent project to upgrade street lighting. The sign you refer to had not been reconnected to the power supply and TfL has arranged for the sign to be reconnected.
