Region: Scotland

Edinburgh is one of a growing number of European and UK cities introducing lower speed limits. The Edinburgh 20mph programme is now three quarters of the way through the city-wide roll out.  The latest Phase (Three) came into effect in August 2017 and the final phase is scheduled to be completed in early 2018.

In addition to improving road safety, the 20mph scheme aims to make streets calmer, quieter and more pleasant places to spend time in, boosting a sense of community and helping the environment by encouraging active travel like walking and cycling.  

CEC 20mph

Simon Lievesley (20mph Programme Manager) and Eileen Hewitt (Active Travel and Road Safety Professional Officer) from the City of Edinburgh Council will outline the steps to the planning and implementation of the 20mph programme including monitoring of the 20mph network.
