20 miles per hour will soon be the speed limit on roads within London's Square Mile, in order to reduce the number of pedestrians and cyclists killed on the streets. The City of London is following in the footsteps of Islington and Camden, where 20-limits have already been rolled out.
A group which campaigns for lower speed limits welcomed today's decision by the City of London.
- The plan to reduce the speed limit in the City of London is supported by the Mayor of London, TfL, and the City of London Police
- The City of London says it will add only minutes to journey times
- A report also shows it will have minimal impact on air quality
The City of London has given the go ahead to reduce the speed limit in the Square Mile to 20mph.
Matt Ratcliffe Should do this by all primary schools but only during school time, and areas where children play or cross roads.
Chris Hall Totally wrong. They are trying to remove cars and make it a cycle zone.
Peter Kelly Of course they will enforce it. The City of London Corporation fund the City Police, that's the only reason they exist.
The City of London is due to vote today on whether to enforce a 20mph speed limit on roads in the Square Mile. City of London police say they will enforce the rule if it's brought in.
The City of London says congestion and pollution will not increase if the 20mph limit is brought in, and may even go down slightly.
