After years of campaigning from Sadiq, local councillors and residents, 20mph speed limits are finally coming to residential roads in Furzedown and parts of Balham and Tooting Bec.
Sadiq Khan MP said:
“I am delighted that after years of campaigning 20mph speed limits are finally coming into force across Furzedown and parts of Balham and Tooting Bec. This is something that myself and local Labour Councillors and activists have campaigned for, for over seven years, and I must admit there were times I thought Wandsworth Council were never going to back down.
“This 20mph success is yet another example of the power of perseverance and community campaigning. Over the last seven years we refused to give in. We knew that 20mph speed limits were needed and wanted by local residents and kept the pressure on the council.
“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.”
