Changes to proposed 20 mph speed restrictions

update (20:25 on 2 Aug): as Cameron Rose's blog reports the revised 20mph area plan recommended (with Marchmont Rd-Kilgraston Rd and Strathearn Rd-Grange Rd remaining at 30mph) was passed earlier by councillors.

Following objections received from Lothian and Borders Police and Lothian Buses council officials are now recommending to the 2 Aug meeting of the Transport Committee (public meeting, 10am, City Chambers) that the proposed 20mph speed limit would no longer be extended to:- 

a) The north-south Marchmont Road – Kilgraston Road – Blackford Avenue 
– West Mains Road – Esslemont Road route; and  

b)  The east-west Church Hill – Strathearn Road – Grange Road route.
