Green councillors welcome 20mph plans as first step to 20mph city

Green councillors have warmly welcomed proposals to extend 20mph zones to many more Edinburgh streets but say it should go further over time.

Green transport spokesperson Cllr Nigel Bagshaw said:

Nigel Bagshaw“This is a good day for safer streets, reduced congestion and pollution; and efforts to promote cities for walkers and cyclists. However, we need to see it as step one in a process which makes 20mph the norm in all city streets, with only very limited exceptions. That would be simpler to understand for drivers and easier to enforce.

“We need not just 20mph streets but a 20mph city”
