star this property answer text <p>The Government is working in international organisations to develop increased safety standards, including for direct vision, for heavy goods vehicles. The timing of changes will depend on the outcome of that work. It has no plans to introduce a direct vision requirement nationally for existing heavy goods vehicles, given the current information available about the accident reduction potential. Using its devolved powers, London is separately taking forward a scheme to promote direct vision, and similar powers are available for other large cities.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In November 2018, the Department published an evaluation into 20mph (signed only) limits: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/20-mph-speed-limits-on-roads" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/20-mph-speed-limits-on-roads</a>.</p><p>It has long been thought that most residents and drivers support 20mph limits, and the study confirms this. The study looked at the enablers and barriers to implementing a successful scheme and found that early engagement and buy-in from other stakeholders, including cross-party support from local councillors; clear articulation of the scheme’s rationale, objectives and outcomes; and tailoring of schemes to local circumstances were crucial to a scheme being accepted by the public and delivered to the anticipated quality, programme and cost.</p><p>Design of streets in their care is a matter for local authorities, including installation or removal of pedestrian crossings. It is for them to decide if removing or altering a crossing is appropriate. In doing so they may consider the effect on factors such as traffic flow and speed and pedestrian movements. The Department is currently updating its guidance on designing traffic signals and pedestrian crossings, to be published later this year.</p><p>Enforcement of speed limits is a matter for the police.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to meeting the various goals set out in the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, including the aim to double the amount of cycling by 2025, and is not considering any revisions. Current policy is projected to fill around one third of the gap towards the 2025 aim of 1.6 billion cycle stages, based on projected funding provision in the current Spending Review period. Further investment to meet existing aims and targets for cycling and walking post 2020/21 will be considered as part of the forthcoming Spending Review.</p><p> </p> more like this

Last month, the aerodrome restriction zone was expanded to include an airport’s aerodrome traffic zone as well as 5km by 1km extensions from the end of runways to protect take-off and landing paths.</p><p>Last year, the Government also put into law a registration requirement for all operators of drones weighing 250 grams or more, and a requirement for remote pilots of drones to take a competency test. These requirements will come into force on 30 November 2019.</p><p>A new Drones Bill will be introduced in the next Session, which will give the Police greater powers to tackle offences involving the misuse of drones. In addition, the Home Office has announced new stop and search powers for drones around aerodromes, which will also be included in the upcoming Bill.</p><p>The Home Office continues to review the UK’s response to the malicious use of drones, and will consider how best to protect the full range of the UK’s critical national infrastructure, as well as testing and evaluating technology to counter drones.</p><p>The Government will also continue to work closely with industry and other partners on regulation, anticipating future innovations wherever possible in order to keep our airports secure and our airspace safe.</p>
