20mph Consultation Update

Earlier last year we asked what you thought about introducing a 20mph speed limit across the borough. As a council we believe 20mph will make our roads safer and, as more people feel confident to walk and cycle, contribute to cleaning our air.

Over 1300 of you took part in the consultation on Kingston Let’s Talk and over 400 commented via email, social media, postcard or at a drop-in session - thank you for taking the time to respond with your views. The full results of the consultation are available to download from the 'Survey results' section of this page.

What was considered by our Neighbourhood Committees?

The consultation findings, along with our recommendations were recently presented to Neighbourhood Committees in June 2021.

While the 20mph projects are a clear borough priority and the summaries below represent what has been considered by each of our Neighbourhood Committees. The delivery of our schemes are still subject to availability of funding and ongoing discussions with Transport for London (TfL).

Maldens and Coombe Neighbourhood Committee - 24 June 2021
