I think the problem with these initiatives is more to do with their heavy handed implementation. 20 mph is an admirable and worthwhile speed limit on residential local streets such as the majority in this plan, and outside schools. Abbey Street
though is a major road between two red route so why is it included? 30 mph would be fine in my opinion.
Even worse there is no proposal to have 20mph limits outside the existing schools in Grange Road
/Soutwark Park Road. There is still a concrete island in the middle of Grange Road
near Crimscott Street
that has led to most of the serious accidents I have seen in this road. As for that ridiculous short bus lane in Grange Road
containing one bus every 15 mins, don't get me started...................... The sad fact is that many traffic policies seem to be drawn up by people who don't, or can't, drive!
