The speed restrictions in the Heart of Hackbridge are designed and engineered to be self-enforcing. They are 20mph “zones” and not 20mph speed limits. No Fixed Penalty Notices or Notices of Intended Prosecutions have therefore been issued in the past 12 months for breaches of the restrictions in these zones.


Sutton Safer Neighbourhood Teams will continue to police the Heart of Hackbridge road layout, acting as a deterrent and providing advice or warnings with regard to excessive speed where appropriate. Sutton police and the MPS Traffic Management Unit have also contributed to the safety audit being conducted by the local authority at this location.
