Islington is to become the first borough in the capital to introduce a 20mph speed limit on all residential roads.

The council will introduce the limit in January 2010 as part of its strategy to death and injury caused by motor vehicle collisions, along with long-term reductions in congestion and pollution.

The measure will affect over 150 miles of residential streets, with a small number of arterial roads retaining 30mph limits. Signs will indicate 20mph streets, with the council deciding against introducing more speed humps.

Campaigning for 20mph in London for a decade
Islington Cycling Action Group said,"Lower speed limits turn streets into living spaces not sterile stretches of tarmac. They create and re-invigorate communities. They also save lives, smooth traffic flow and cut pollution."

Councillor Greg Foxsmith, Islington's environment spokesman, said: "We want streets where our kids can walk to school safely, where our cyclists can ride without risk, and where pollution levels are driven down."

Policy proven to save lives and reduce injury
Transport for London research has shown that 20mph zones can reduce casualties by 43 percent and fatal or serious casualties by over 50 percent.

At least seven other London councils are looking at similar proposals.
