The council says:
"Highways engineers are installing signs and road markings in the area
with the new 20mph limits expected to come into force in the next few
days. These new restrictions will apply in Franche Court Road, Burmester
Road and Aldren Road.
The council consulted residents in the area in response to a
petition asking for a 20mph limits. In Franche Court Road every single
response was in favour while 92 per cent of Burmester Road residents and
90 per cent of those in Aldren Road who took part in the consultation
voted in favour of the proposal.
Councillors have always said that wherever there is significant
support for a 20mph limit in a particular area they will invite everyone
living there to have their say. This has led to many zones being
established in the borough.
Recently councillors approved plans for a forthcoming borough-wide
consultation asking residents if they supported the idea of 20mph limits
in all residential parts of Wandsworth."
