READY FOR 20 - SCOTLAND
8th June 2016, City Chambers, Council Chamber Edinburgh

Edinburgh expects to begin to introduce mandatory 20mph speed limits in July 2016. 20’s Plenty for Us are excited to have been invited by Edinburgh Council to organise this event to celebrate the scheme and to share best practices.

This event will feature presentations about lessons learned from the successful introduction of 20mph schemes from around Europe, Scotland and England. 

This is an opportunity for officers and politicians from around Scotland and the UK to understand the opportunities of adopting schemes, and hear from experienced practitioners about the lessons learned.
