In your 2021 election manifesto you said you would: “accelerate the roll out of 20 mph speed limits on the TfL road network,” and: “improve the safety of the most dangerous junctions, including a programme of new pedestrian crossings at those junctions currently lacking them.” When will you announce the investment and commitment to bring these pledges into action?

Within my Vision Zero Action Plan, I committed to introducing a 20mph speed limit on all of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) within the central London Congestion Charging zone, which was delivered in March 2020. In addition, I committed to delivering a programme to reduce speed limits on other locations on the TLRN to address areas of high road danger, delivered over the period until 2024. This programme currently involves the introduction of 20mph speed limits on 140km of TfL roads by the end of the 2024/25 financial year. Through my manifesto pledge I have made a commitment to accelerate this work as well as to improve safety at the most dangerous junctions within the capital with a programme of new pedestrian crossings. TfL is currently drafting a plan to set out how this work might be undertaken, subject to the constraints of the Government funding deal agreed on 1 June following the devastating impact of the pandemic on TfL’s finances.
