The measure will mean that Lambeth joins other inner-London boroughs such as Islington, Camden and Southwark in having borough-wide 20mph limits.
The major routes such as Clapham Road, Brixton Road, Streatham High Road etc are managed by Transport for London and are excluded from the proposals.
Published in the official Gazette the order states "The general effect of the Order would be to introduce a 20 mph speed limit on all the roads and parts of roads in the London Borough of Lambeth which are not currently restricted as such by way of existing Traffic Orders"
Lambeth Cyclists welcomes this move as we believe (and research shows) that reducing the speed of motor traffic creates a more pleasant walking and cycling environment and reduces the road danger for cyclists and pedestrians.
