Petition for 20mph on Elgin Avenue

LCC Westminster web site »

There is currently a petition on Westminster's web site for a 20mph limit on Elgin Avenue.

Elgin Avenue
Elgin Avenue: would you fancy cycling along this road with vehicles travelling at 30mph?

As the photo shows, parked vehicles along the side and middle of the road leave little space for vehicles to overtake cyclists - without forcing them into the 'dooring zone'.

Reducing motor traffic speeds is proven to prevent death and serious injuries to cyclists and pedestrians alike, especially children, with little impact on most journey times.

According to Cllr Paul Dimoldenberg, who started the petition, 'Residents say that this road is becoming more dangerous as drivers speed up and down to the detriment of pedestrians and cyclists.'
