Marylebone 20 mph Speed Limits - Coming Soon!
A 20-mile per hour speed limit looks set to be introduced to our streets around schools in Westminster shortly. We understand that it is likely to be trailed on our roads between Gloucester Place and the Edgware Road. There is growing interest and use of 20mph (30km/h) speed limits across the UK and in London in particular. In London 25% of all roads are now subject to a 20mph speed limit and within the Central London Congestion Charging Zone (i.e. Inner Ring Road) 50% of all roads are subject to a 20mph limit. Westminster is one of only two central London Boroughs that do not have most roads subject to 20mph limits. 20mph areas/streets can have a positive impact on all road users but particularly the more vulnerable such as children, the elderly, and cyclists.
