20mph speed limit in Camden
Date: Dec 13, 2013
As part of our commitment to improving road safety in the borough, from Monday 16 December Camden will have a borough-wide 20mph speed limit.
Why are we doing this?
Slower speeds play a big part in reducing road collisions and casualties for all road users. A slower speed means that drivers have more time to react, and the outcome of a collision is not as severe.
Slower speeds also help create a calmer, more pleasant environment for everyone who uses the street, and will encourage more people to walk and cycle.
When does it start?
From 16 December 2013, road users will be re-minded of the limit with 20mph signage and road markings only.
However, following the introduction of the new limit, we will continue to monitor traffic speeds and casualties. Where speed continues to be excessive we will consider additional measures to improve the effectiveness of the new limit, for example by changing the street design, and introducing traffic calming measures and additional signage where appropriate.
Transport for London (TfL) managed ‘red routes’ will not be included in the new borough-wide limit. However, we are continuing discussions with TfL about the future inclusion of some red routes.
