Councillors approved a citywide 20mph speed limit network for Edinburgh at the Transport and Environment Committee on 13 January 2015 following extensive consultation and research showing a high level of public support for its introduction.  The roll out of the Scheme is planned in 4 phases between June 2016 and March 2018. 

The City of Edinburgh Council is introducing (with the exception of strategic routes) a citywide 20mph speed limit, the first city in Scotland to do so.  The project aims to:

  • reduce the risk and severity of accidents by reducing speed, increasing the safety and well being of all road users.  This is in line with the Council's Vision Zero philosophy, working towards the provision of a modern road network where all are safe from the risk of death or seriously injury
  • create more favourable conditions for pedestrians and cyclists in the city.  The extensive network of 20mph streets will help embed the QuietRoutes and the Cycle Friendly City Programme in a context that is safe and comfortable for cyclists
  • create streets that are attractive, social and people friendly
  • implement Policy Safe4 set out in Edinburgh's Local Transport Strategy 2014-2019

Prior to commencement of the project, over 50% of Edinburgh’s residential streets were already in 20mph zones. The project extends the 20mph speed limit to the city centre, main shopping streets and residential areas while retaining a strategic network of roads at 30mph and 40mph.  A map of the 20mph network and implementation timetable is available at
