“We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to follow Transport for London’s lead and to reduce the number of pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists killed or seriously injured by 40 per cent by 2020.”

Residents in a number of Westminster’s residential streets have already urged the Council to introduce a 20mph speed limit and traffic calming measures, including Elgin Avenue, Saltram Crescent, Fernhead Road, Marne Street and Nutbourne Street.
The TfL initiative is a very welcome step forward and should be followed in Westminster as a matter of urgency in order to reduce accidents and increase road safety. Westminster Council cannot continue to avoid listening to local residents on this important issue. Action needs to be taken to reduce road casualties and immediate 20mph speed trials need to be established in areas of Westminster where residents have petitioned for action, without further delay.
