20mph speed reduction on Seven Sisters Road goes live
Having worked with our residents to make Seven Sisters Road (A503) safer, the speed limit has been reduced to 20mph today to help increase safety in the local area.
This is one of the initiatives that the council is working on with TfL to meet the Mayor’s Vision Zero target that aims to eliminate all fatal and serious injuries resulting on London’s roads by 2041.
Slower speeds save lives, particularly where the road is shared with people walking, cycling or riding a motorbike. A person walking is up to five times more likely to be killed if hit by a vehicle travelling at 30mph than if they were hit at 20mph.
As a results 20mph speed limits are being installed across London as the speed at which people are driving or riding is the most important factor to help reduce fatalities and reduce serious injuries across London.
Cllr Seema Chandwani, Cabinet Member for Tackling Inequality and Resident Services, said:
We’re very excited to be working with TfL and the Mayor of London to reduce speed limits in our borough.
We were clear in our manifesto we will be tackling road danger and meeting the Vision Zero goal to eliminate deaths and serious injury in Haringey.
