Maximum Posted Speed Limit at TfL London Bus Garages

Transport for London did not have the information requested.

Dear Transport for London,

As a reasonable and prudent manager of all contracts with its Bus
Operating Companies, TfL must be aware of the maximum posted speed limit at each TfL Bus Operating Company Garage and Depot within the TfL service area.

Kindly provide me with the maximum speed limit posted at each TfL Bus Operating Company Garage and Depot within the TfL service area.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Kearney

I would place a bet on TfL not knowing this, however as a general rule most are 5mph, some I believe are 10mph and an odd few may still be 4mph, which is an old London Transport rule from when they were in public ownership.

Dear Mr Kearney

 

Our Ref:         FOI-1229-1314

 

Thank you for your e-mail received on 10 October 2013 asking for
information about the maximum posted speed limit at Bus Operating Company
garages and depots. Please accept my apologies for the delay in my
response.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and TfL’s information access policy.

 

Unfortunately TfL does not hold the information you have requested. TfL
does not set speed limits at Bus Operating Company garages or depots.

 

Bus operators set low speed limits for garages but these are different
environments to a highway and reflect not just vehicle movements but staff
undertaking re-fuelling of buses and routine maintenance.

 

Please accept our apologies that we are unable to assist you further on
this occasion.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
