London 20mph zones

12 July 2021

TfL sets out plans for the next stage of lowering speed limits on its roads in Westminster.

Transport for London (TfL) has set out the next stage of its plans to make its roads in Westminster safer, which would see speed limits on almost all TfL roads in the borough reduced to 20mph. Reducing speed limits can make a real difference to cutting road danger and enabling more people to walk and cycle, with 59 per cent of people in an earlier consultation stating that reduced speed limits would encourage more cycling.  

In March 2020, TfL introduced a 20mph speed limit on all of its roads within the central London congestion charging zone as part of its Vision Zero commitment to eliminate death and serious injury on London’s roads.
