Time for a 20mph speed limit?

Borough-wide 20mph speed limit

This consultation is now closed

Consultation on the proposed 20mph borough wide speed limit has now closed. Thank you to all who participated. Results of the consultation will be published on this page when we have analysed the information.

Consultation results will be considered by the council’s executive management board and a decision taken on whether or not to go ahead with the project.

That decision is expected to be taken in February.

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.
