Question

Do you agree that where possible, and in line with the Go 20 road safety campaign, drivers on residential roads should comply with a 20mph speed limit? In particular, a constituent has asked me to raise the issue of Werter Road, Putney, as an example of a residential road that could benefit from encouraging drivers to drive at less than 20 miles per hour. What will you do about the issue of this specific road and the broader issue of speed limits?

Werter Road in Putney is the responsibility of the London Borough of Wandsworth.

TfL support the installation of 20mph zones and speed limits on borough roads and in fact have funded many 20mph zones across the city's residential zones.
