Question

In January 2013 you confirmed to me in writing that 'there will be a 20mph speed limit for all roads in the Park, including primary roads'. A constituent has informed me that Newham Council's Head of Traffic and Transportation is apparently unaware of this commitment. Please re-affirm your commitment to making all roads in the Olympic Park 20mph roads and confirm how the speed limit will be enforced.

I can confirm that the speed limit on the Park's roads will be 20 mph. Individual boroughs may choose to amend the speed limits on roads once adopted. The MPS will enforce the speed limit, however, the park streetscape has been designed in consultation with stakeholders using a variety of measures to discourage speeding.
