The Department has not had any recent discussions with the Mayor of London on the use of 20mph speed limits on the roads of London.

Local authorities have the power to set speed limits on their roads. In London, it is the London Boroughs who are the highway authority, except for all red routes for which Transport for London is the highway authority.
