I have been contacted by a constituent about speeding in Crystal Palace. Would TfL and the MPS consider working together on a trial in Crystal Palace of enhanced community road watch with an automated system such as Community Speed Watch Online?

TfL is working in partnership with the MPS and City of London Police to establish Community Roadwatch (CRW) across London. CRW is a road safety initiative which aims to reduce speeding in residential areas through community policing. CRW delivery is being undertaken by local borough MPS Safer Transport Teams, and will be launched in Bromley by the Bromley Safer Transport Team in July 2015.  CRW will be in place in every London borough by the end of 2015.

All details and results recorded by CRW teams will be logged and will be independently evaluated. The results of this evaluation will be used to inform the review of the approach and operating procedures.  As part of this review, alternative automated systems such as Community Speedwatch Online may be considered.

If your constituent would like to take part in the Bromley Community Roadwatch initiative, or suggest a residential area where there are community concerns around speeding, please do encourage them to contact the MPS Bromley Safer Transport Team. Details can be found at
