Date unveiled for Scotland's first 20mph conference
The first 20mph conference with a specific focus on Scotland will take place on 8 June, coinciding with the introduction of new mandatory 20mph limits across Edinburgh.
Organised by 20’s Plenty for Us, supported by Transport Scotland and hosted by City of Edinburgh Council, ‘Ready for 20 Scotland’ aims to ‘highlight best practice in road danger reduction and facilitate networking among professionals with regard to Total 20 – the policy of wide area 20mph speed limits for built up areas’.
Politicians, transport practitioners, police and campaigning experts will all share their experiences from the introduction of 20mph schemes across Scotland, England and other parts of Europe.
The event is aimed at transport planners, councillors, road safety officers, highways engineers, public health officers, campaigners and consultants.
Rod King MBE, founder and campaign director of 20’s Plenty for Us, said: “Our first 20mph conference in Scotland is an opportunity not to be missed. 20mph limits is a proven to make places safer and more people friendly.
“Those with an interest in safety, sustainability, transport, public health or the environment will find it fascinating. This will be our 8th conference and each year they get bigger and better.”
