After years of campaigning for 20mph zones in residential areas across Tooting, Sadiq welcomes the news that Wandsworth Council is to begin work installing 20mph zones in parts of Tooting Bec, Balham and Furzedown.
Sadiq Khan MP said:
“I am extremely pleased that after years of campaigning the work to introduce 20mph speed limits in Furzedown and parts of Balham and Tooting Bec is about to begin! This is something that myself and local Labour Councillors and activists have long campaigned for, and I must admit there were times I thought Wandsworth Council were never going to back down.
“This success is yet another example of the power of perseverance and community campaigning.
“Now the council have finally given the green light to 20mph zones in these two wards, I’ll be working hard with local Labour councillors and residents to bring 20mph zones to the rest of Tooting, and Earlsfield and Wandsworth Common too! Watch this space.”
