Time for a 20mph speed limit?

Borough-wide 20mph speed limit

Please view the Summary Research Report (PDF, 149KB) for the latest consultation results.

The result of the consultation was reported to the Cabinet, at its meeting of 15 July 2014 and approved for the introduction of a 20mph limit for all residential roads and in the borough’s town centres. The existing speed limit on the remaining main road network would at this stage be retained as at present.

What we consulted on

We wanted to know what you think about a possible borough-wide 20mph speed limit.

Some 50% of Haringey’s roads are already part of 20mph zones or 20mph limits. 20mph zones are self enforcing in that they have humps and raised tables which compel traffic to slow down. Unlike zones, which have traffic calming measures, 20mph limits are defined by signs and road markings. No speed humps or cushions would be introduced as part of the 20mph limit.

We propose introducing a 20mph speed limit on all roads for which we are responsible as the highway authority (excluding red routes for which Transport for London (TfL) is responsible).

Additional information, including frequently asked questions (FAQ), is set out in our 20mph consultation document (PDF, 1MB). This also contains general information and details of those towns and boroughs who are considering introducing, or who have already introduced, 20mph limits.
