Speeding on a residential road

Reported in the Roads/Highways category anonymously at 20:30, Thu 17 August 2017

Sent to Lewisham Borough Council 4 minutes later

People driving up & down Levendale Road at speed (and i'm talking 30+mph). This is a residential street (20mph max) with children playing but is unfortunately used as a cut-through from Woolstone Road to Perry Hill. I would like the council to consider installing speed humps please.

  • The Borough-wide 20mph limit, which was introduced in September last year, is still in its first phase of implementation. We are currently monitoring speeds across the Borough and developing a programme of measures for streets where speeds remain high. Reducing vehicle speeds is a critical factor in reducing the number of casualties on our roads - this remains among our highest priorities, and 20mph limits are becoming an established part of the London Mayor’s Transport Strategy. This does of course include an element of behaviour change, as did previous campaigns for seat belts and drink driving, and the project includes promotional work with schools, communities and local Police. It also requires enforcement and we recognise that, as with the previous 30mph limit, the Police have limited resources to enforce speeds. We are therefore working to prioritise and target both enforcement action and a programme of physical interventions
