Edinburgh 20mph Speed Limits – First signs and lines

Edinburgh 20mph Speed Limits – first signs and lines going down

Edinburgh is the first city in Scotland implementing a citywide 20mph network. The new limit aims to reduce the risk and severity of road collisions, encourage travel on foot and by bike and help make the city’s streets more people-friendly.

The phased roll out of the 20mph network is planned over 18 months between June 2016 and February 2018. The city centre and rural west Edinburgh form the first phase, with the installation of signs and lines commencing at the beginning of June. Work is scheduled to take 8 – 10 weeks, with minimal disruption expected. The new speed limit for this phase becomes effective on 31 July 2016.

Approximately 50% of Edinburgh’s residential streets are already in 20mph zones. The project extends the 20mph speed limit to the city centre, main shopping streets and residential areas while retaining a strategic network of roads at 30mph and 40mph. View a map of the 20mph network and implementation timetable at http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph.

Large 20mph signs will define the entrance and exit of a 20mph area where the speed limit changes, followed by smaller repeater signs or road markings with speed limit roundels. Quick drying paint, with a traffic cone system will be used to install roundels at night.

Police Scotland support lower speeds across the city and are working with the Council to achieve this. Other partners including NHS Lothian, Lothian Buses, Living Streets, Spokes and Neighbourhood Partnerships are working with the Council to deliver the strategy. A high level of publicity and awareness raising is scheduled around the time when the schools return in August and in September 2016.
