We would like to know your views on the proposed projects that are being implemented as part of the council’s 20mph programme. The schemes being proposed are designed to help reduce vehicle speeds and improve future road safety conditions.

Lambeth – a 20mph borough?

On 4th April 2016 the speed limit on all of Lambeth’s roads was reduced to 20mph, in order to help reduce vehicle speeds, improve overall safety and encourage sustainable travel behaviour. Our webpage has more details.

As part of this work Lambeth has also undertaken speed and volume surveys on a number of roads in the borough and prioritised four areas for traffic calming measures.

Further locations are due to be programmed next year, subject to funding.
