20 is Plenty for Graveney

Wandsworth Council has introduced a 20mph limit on residential roads across the borough, including Graveney Ward.

Cllr. Andy Gibbons said ‘We are pleased that the Council will finally implement the limit as we have been asking for a ’20 is Plenty’ policy for several  years.  We already some 20mph zones in Graveney but now the whole ward will be covered.’

Implementing a borough-wide 20mph limit will cost £725,000 and will be funded by a grant received from Transport for London.

This will pay mainly for appropriate signage and road markings to inform drivers of the lower limit. There are no plans within these proposals to introduce any additional speed humps.

Enforcement of the new limit will be carried out by the police, with the council working in support of their efforts, alongside community leaders, crime prevention panel members and neighbourhood watch co-ordinators.
