Edinburgh Council are seeking views on proposals to extend 20mph speed limits in Edinburgh and on introducing lower speed limits on our rural roads. The rural roads are mostly west of the city between Balerno and Queensferry.
Edinburgh’s streets and rural roads are shared by many people and types of vehicle. We want to make our streets and rural roads safer and more pleasant for all, especially the most vulnerable users; those on foot, on bikes or, particularly on rural lanes, on horseback. Higher traffic speeds can put people off walking and cycling, and accidents tend to be worse at higher speeds.
Lower speed limits support the aims of the City Mobility Plan by improving the way residents and visitors can move about and enjoy the city. The proposals fit with wider Council policies around Active Travel, the Vision Zero approach to road safety and achieving our ambition to be net zero by 2030.
