A new 20mph speed zone comes into force for traffic in the City of London from Aldgate to Fleet Street from July.
The restriction in the Square Mile starts at the A11 Aldgate High Street going west.
The move by the City of London Corporation follows a public consultation which had just 41 responses, 29 in support and 12 against.
The City’s neighbouring local authorities have also been consulted, including Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
The 20mph limit is being enforced on all boundary roads except Westminster. These include Middlesex Street between Aldgate and Bishopsgate.

But it doesn’t include the A100 at Tower Hill continuing along the A3211 Upper Thames Street to Blackfriars Bridge, under Transport for London control, which remains 30mph.
TfL, however, is to run an experimental 20mph limit on the A10 through The City, from Norton Folgate in Shoreditch along Bishopsgate to London Bridge.
