Capital speed limit could be reduced to 15 miles per hour

THE city-wide speed limit in London could be lowered to 15mph in 2022, according to a planning document from the City of London Corporation (CLC).

The document, submitted to the Secretary of State for Transport, was due to be discussed at a Planning and Transportation Committee on October 5 as The Hillingdon Herald went to press.

According to the CLC, if the new speed limit is agreed on, work will begin on an “experimental traffic order” (ETO) to introduce it across the city.

Bruce McVean, acting assistant director of transportation at the CLC, said: “The implementation of the ETO will follow revised sign off processes introduced as part of the lessons learnt from the Beech Street zero emission scheme.”

The announcement comes as part of the City Corporation’s commitment to delivering “Vision Zero” and eliminating death and serious injury on the City’s streets by 2040.

Mr McVean added: “A comprehensive programme of projects and activities to deliver Vision Zero is currently being implemented, this includes working with TfL to deliver improvements on the Transport for London Road Network.”
