Westminster City Council has launched a consultation on a borough-wide 20mph speed limit and wants to hear from residents and businesses throughout the city.
The council’s proposal for a 20mph speed limit across Westminster follows a successful trial in which the council introduced 20mph speed limits around 39 schools in the borough. This proposal supports a long-term drive to create a safer, healthier and cleaner environment for all those who live, work, visit and study in Westminster. The 20mph speed limits will be complemented by work to improve the environment for pedestrians and communities, which also includes improving air quality around schools, creating a network of Active Streets, enhancing green space, promoting a healthier lifestyle and much more.
Transport for London Red Routes will be except from the 20mph Westminster speed limit. The portion of Edgware Road within the Marble Arch London BID boundary is a TfL Red Route, including past the Marylebone Flyover where the A5 meets the A5205 in front of Lord’s Cricket Ground and stretching down Park Lane where the A4 meets the A4202.
