20mph speed limit proposals

posted 15 Sept 2010, 04:00 by South Edinburgh Net Admin

There has been some recent publicity about a proposal for a speed limit of 20mph in the area between Melville Drive south of the Meadows to Blackford Hill.  The proposed affected area is bounded on one side by Morningside Road and on the other side Holyrood Park.  The approximate area is shown here.

The proposal comes before the Transport Committee on Tuesday 21st September for approval for consultation.  In other words there will be an opportunity for public views before it comes back to the Transport Committee to decide whether or not to proceed to the proposed trial scheme.

Early days yet - but local residents should sharpen their pencils to make their views known.  The paper containing the proposals will be available online by Wednesday next week at the Council Papers Online (CPOL) website.
