The Council is to roll-out a 20mph speed limit across the whole of central Ealing
at the end of March this year, the Forum has learnt.
“A successful trial and review [in Acton] will see the speed limit expanded to residential
areas and town centres across the Borough by Spring 2019”, Ealing Council Cabinet
said on 21st July 2015. The Acton 20mph limit was made permanent in Spring 2018.
We now hear that the Council is to implement a second trial 20mph limit area, to the west of A406 North Circular. In the south, Hounslow Council also plans a 20mph zone.
The Borough’s Transport Strategy, Local Implementation Plan and Cycle Plan all include a Borough-wide speed limit. These plans were approved by the LBE Cabinet on 12th February.
We asked the Council officers who wrote the report for some background on the implementation of 20mph west of A406 North Circular Road. We have been told the next step should be the publication of the formal traffic order. If all goes to plan, this will come into effect on 31st March.
