More than 250 motorists received warning letters from the Metropolitan Police after volunteers with speed guns caught them breaking the 20 mph speed limit on Salter Road during 2019.
According to information obtained by SE16.com under the Freedom of Information Act, three two-hour Community Roadwatch sessions were held in Salter Road during 2019.
It took just six hours to record the 257 speeding motorists.
On 2 February 2019, 84 warning letters were generated. Further sessions on 21 June and 27 June 2019 led to 92 and 81 letters being sent.
According to a 2017 report for Southwark Council, “speeding is a significant problem along Salter Road, this is probably due to the nature of the road, which gives the impression that it is a rural road and driving at speeds of greater than 20mph are feel natural and are comfortable”.
Network Rail has worked with community groups and Millwall Football Club to celebrate the team’s symbol – a rampant lion – with a new mural in Zampa Road pointing the way to The New Den.
It’s the latest in a number of collaborations between Network Rail and artist Lionel Stanhope.
Lionel Stanhope said: “I’m really happy to have worked with Network Rail and Millwall Football Club on this mural and I’m pleased with the outcome. It sits well on the wall with strong colours and I’ve received positive feedback from people walking past.”
Steve Kavanagh, Millwall chief executive, said: “I’d like to thank everyone involved at Network Rail for assisting with this project and we’re also incredibly grateful for the efforts of Lionel, who has done a superb job with the new mural. I’d like to extend our thanks to members of Millwall Supporters’ Club who have overseen an initiative organised by the fans, for the fans.”
Eddie Burton, community engagement manager at Network Rail said: “It’s great to see this wall looking so good and I’m really pleased we could do this for Millwall Football Club. We hope the fans and local community will treasure this artwork and the mural will offer a great photo opportunity for years to come”
