Answered By:

A key objective of the TfL funded Safer Transport Command and for the Traffic OCU is to enhance safety on London's roads, especially for pedestrians, cyclists and powered two wheelers.

TfL supports the introduction of 20mph zones and limits in boroughs which choose to implement them. The TLRN already has a number of 20mph limits and TfL it is willing to consider 20mph on the TLRN at specific locations.
