Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

TfL supports the installation of 20mph zones where appropriate and where there is local support for it. It has recently implemented one on the TLRN at Waterloo roundabout and on its approaching roads. TfL has also funded many 20mph zones across the local borough road network through its LIP funding, where boroughs are keen to implement them. TfL will continue to work with the boroughs who want further 20mph zones where appropriate and in keeping with the wider functions of the local road network.

I shall be publishing my Road Safety Plan this summer which will set out my priorities for improving road safety across London and I will work with boroughs to implement it.
