Temporary Advise on Speeding Vehicles on Kings Cross Gyratory Roads

9 Sep

TFL has sent us some temporary advise, what people should do to yet again report fast or speeding vehicles. Below I attach their full advise:


“The Mayor of London and TfL are committed to delivering a Vision Zero approach to road danger reduction, which will rid London’s roads of death and serious injury. TfL funds, operates and maintains London’s safety camera network, which includes speed, red light and average speed camera systems. These help prevent a significant number of deaths and serious injuries each year.

Safety cameras are only one of the ways to tackle speed-related deaths and serious injuries on our roads. We work in partnership with the London boroughs to implement physical engineering measures to encourage compliance with lower speed limits. Using this approach, we’re also in the process of reducing speed limits on almost 150km of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN).

Further information on our Safer Speeds initiative can be found online at: https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/safety-and-security/road-safety/safe-speeds

We’re also working to deliver other speed management initiatives such as the development of a dedicated Speed Enforcement Team and Community Roadwatch, which aims to reduce speeding in residential areas, and gives local residents the opportunity to work side by side with their local police teams and use speed detection equipment to identify speeding vehicles in their communities.

To take part in Community Roadwatch, or to suggest a residential area where there are community concerns around speeding, members of the public can contact: CommunityRoadwatch@met.police.uk, stating the borough where they live. Enquiries will be forwarded to the relevant local MPS Safer Transport Team, who will be in touch.

The public can report dangerous, illegal, or antisocial road user behaviour directly to the police via their online reporting tool, RoadSafe London. Every report helps the police and TfL to understand where and when bad road user behaviour takes place. Further details about how we are improving compliance with speed limits is available in the Vision Zero Action Plan available at: http://content.tfl.gov.uk/vision-zero-action-plan.pdf.
