S i m o n wrote:30's Slow Enough
I am outraged by the way the councillors and out-of-town traffic planners make the lives of ordinary residents ever more miserable and unhealthy. It is the residents who suffer from the constant attempts to clog up our streets and slow down traffic. We all need the benefit of transport. Through traffic might be able to find alternative routes but the residents and those that serve us cannot.
As to communication and signage - I have been baffled recently where 20 mph signs on Kennington Road have been taken down, suggesting the experiment was over, but there are advertising banners saying 20mph, in one case alongside the speed limit sign saying 30mph. Kennington Road is a major, wide road with four broad lanes and crossings. It is not somewhere children should play. There is no benefit in slowing down traffic on roads such as this. It just harms the residents and our environment.
