This report provides an evaluation of the South Central Edinburgh 20mph Limit Pilot project which aims to reduce vehicle speeds through signage and surface markings.

The evaluation examines changes to vehicle speeds and volumes, road traffic incidents, and the attitudes of residents to walking, cycling, and the local environment. It also assesses feedback from key stakeholders and residentís travel habits.

The evaluation report says benefits evidenced through the pilot are lower vehicle speeds and strong residential support for 20mph limits. The report says road incident reductions are anticipated due to the reduction in average vehicle speeds.

The report also presents a strategy for the roll-out of 20mph limits to all of Edinburgh's residential streets, main shopping streets, city centre streets, and streets with high levels of pedestrian and/or cyclist activity.
