Phase 2 of 20mph Speed Limit Now Live

20mph

Phase 2 of the rollout of a 20miles per hour (mph) speed limitPhase 2 of the rollout of a 20miles per hour (mph) speed limit went live on 28 February 2017.   The second phase is the largest construction phase in the scheme  stretching from Granton to Portobello, Duddingston to Morningside, Gorgie to Murrayfield.

You can find out if your street is changing to 20mph by checking the interactive mapinteractive map.

The introduction of the new 20mph limit relies on signage and road markings alone.  Existing speed humps or other traffic calming will remain unchanged.  Larger 20mph signs will mark the entrance and exit of a 20mph area where the speed limit changes.  These signs will be supplemented by smaller repeater signs or road markings with speed limit roundels.  

While many cities in the UK, Europe and beyond have already brought in 20mph (or 30km), Edinburgh is the first city in Scotland to roll out 20mph limits in this way, with many other areas, including East Lothian, keen to bring in slower speeds. 

Slower speeds bring many benefits to places and people. They help to reduce the risk and severity of collisions, encourage people to walk and cycle and spend more time in an area. The project extends 20mph speed limits to approximately 80% of Edinburgh’s streets, while retaining a network of roads at 30mph and 40mph on key arterial routes.    

Further information is also available on the Council’s website at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mphwww.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph and on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/edin20mphwww.facebook.com/edin20mph
