Answer for 20mph limit in London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

In 2008, 11 per cent of London's road network had 20mph speed limits. This has increased to almost 25 per cent of roads in London now having a 20mph limit at the decision of each borough. This is set to increase further as the London Borough of Lambeth will be rolling out a 20mph speed limit borough-wide next month. To coincide with this, TfL will be trialling 20mph speed limits on the TfL Road Network (TLRN) in Lambeth. The trial sites include Brixton Town Centre, Clapham High Street and Stamford High Street.
