You have mistakenly put up 20 mph signs in a 30 mph area. The 30 mph road markings are faded so you have conflicting information. The 20 mph speed limit finishes at the end of rushy green entering the south circular. The temporary or 20 mph trial that started in July 2018 finishes at Catford. You need to take down the 20 mph signs and replace with the correct speed limit which is 30 and repaint the 30 road markings. People are failing the test as you have not clearly identified the 30 mph speed limit change. I am a driving examiner I have to enforce the signs in the local area. Your signs are wrong. Please change to 30 mph. I have been explaining this to TfL in clear languages on numerous occasions and have read all of the trials and documentation within my area as I am also a resident. I am a driving examiner in this area. You are making my and my and my colleagues life more challenging than it really needs to be. Please can you change the signs to the correct signs. (30mph) I would really appreciate it . If you are extending the trial to include other roads you will then need to put up the 30 signs on all the surrounding roads to ensure road users know when the speed increases. You currently do not have this. Therefore it must be a mistake as you haven’t followed through on any of the other roads for the change of speed limit.
