Consultation on borough-wide 20MPH limit launched

Logo LBRUT Small

Residents are now able to have their say on plans to introduce a borough-wide 20MPH speed limit in Richmond upon Thames.

Earlier this year the Council announced its intention to reduce the speed limit on all roads (except the A316 and A205 which are under Transport for London red-route control) to 20mph.

The speed limit would not only reduce vehicle speeds on our roads, but evidence shows that it should reduce the number and severity of road accidents, creates an environment that is more conducive to walking and cycling and will bring the borough speed limit into line with other neighbouring councils, such as Wandsworth and Hounslow.

From 24th September, residents are being sent consultation materials to their home and are being invited to have their say online. In addition, residents can attend the new Community Conversation events across the borough.

The consultation can be found here.
