London Road in Norbury is one leading contender
Even more roads in Croydon could be given a 20mph speed limit.
Many roads in Croydon have already had their speed limit lowered from 30mph to 20mph.
And the lower speed limit could be rolled out further, a Croydon Council cabinet meeting heard on Monday (September 24).
The proposal to expand the 20mph zones and tackle congestion around schools is included in the council’s corporate plan for 2018-22.
This sets out the key priorities of the Labour administration that was voted in to run the council for another four years in May.
Councillor Simon Hoar said: “I noticed in the papers you mentioned about expanding the 20mph zones.
“As I understand it most of the borough apart from the main roads is already covered by that so where would you extend it to?”
Cabinet member for transport and environment Cllr Stuart King said initial results from the lower speed limit were good.
“We’ve had some preliminary results in for the first two areas of the borough that we introduced 20mph limits and they area very positive,” said Cllr King.
“It would be fair to say we’ve made good early progress, we always said it would be a long term benefit, but I’m quite impressed with the early results.
“We will look at roads that aren’t currently part of the 20mph network to see if there is a case to introducing them.”
Some roads in Croydon are managed by TfL and in July London mayor Sadiq Khan announced he wants to see the lower speed limit rolled out on all roads.
Cllr King added: “I know that one early candidate for that is London Road in Norbury town centre.
“I think residents might quite rightly question why one part of London Road is reduced to 20mph then it’s 30 then can be reduced to 20 again.
“So I think we want to make sure it’s joined up with the mayor’s plans.”
