Here in Merton Park Ward we’ve had a 20 mph speed limit on our residential roads for 10 years now, so motorists have had time to get used to the idea, even if they’re not always fully observant of it in practice.
But now 20 mph is to be the speed limit for ALL roads in our area, major as well as minor. That includes Morden Road, Kingston Road, Martin Way and even Bushey Road. In fact all roads in the borough south of the SWR main line out of Waterloo are covered. See the full map here
Signage and road markings will change to show the new 20 mph limit, but at this stage, no additional traffic calming is proposed. At the time of writing, the statutory consultation 6th – 27th September, was yet to commence but when it goes live you can respond directly on the council’s website.
