This is probabaly one for both Hackney and Islington. On Tabernacle Street, there is a confusing mess of speed limit signs which apparently raise the speed limit to 30 mph for a 5 metre stretch of road before returning to the 20 mph that surrounds it in all directions.
This is probably caused by the Islington / Hackney boundary on this street, with the traffic orders not really joining up.
As it stands, the mess of speed limit signs are confusing, there is no need to have a 30 mph speed limit there. No vehicle could sensibly make use of that available speed for such a small stretch.
Could the area be visited and the tiny island of 30 mph speed limit be removed and match the surrounding streets?
