Havering Council have released a proposal to reduce speed limits on country roads. In the Public Consultation Letter they state:
We are proposing to reduce the speed limits and introduce minor safety measures to slow traffic on a number of roads that are listed in an attachment to this letter. There have been a total of 63 personal injury accidents including one death on these roads over a five year period.
The Government and Transport for London have set targets for 2020 to reduce killed or serious injury accidents (KSIs) by 40%, child KSIs by 50%, pedestrian and cyclist KSI’s by 50% from the average number of casualties for 2005-09. Our proposals will help to meet these targets.
The Proposed roads are:
|Road Names||Existing Speed Limits||Proposed Speed Limits||Wards|
