Edinburgh Council is proposing reducing the speed limit on 22 different roads across the city.
The plans, would see the speed limit dropped from 40mph to 30mph on Edinburgh roads. The council will now consult on the plans and there will be an opportunity for residents to have their say later in the process, a council official said.
In a letter Andrew Young, the council’s Traffic Orders Administration Office revealed, “the City of Edinburgh Council proposes to promote an order which will reduce the speed limit from 40 mph to 30 mph on various roads”.
He added: “Formal objections are not invited at this stage, as a further period will be allowed for the submission of objections when the proposals are formally advertised. It is intended to advertise the proposals at an early date and I should welcome any comments you may have to offer within 3 weeks of the date of this letter.”
