We answered

TfL Ref: 4048-2324

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 11 February 2024 asking for information about the A20 speed restrictions.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.  I can confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked: I wish to put in a freedom of information request to find out when the 40 mph speed restrictions were imposed on the stretch of the A20 dual carriageway Eastbound between Southwood Road/Green Lane, Eltham SE9 interchange as far as Sandy Lane, St Paul's Cray BR5 junction.

The speed limit was lowered on 18th October 2023. Please see the attached traffic order to that effect.

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation some personal data has been removed, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely
