It will feature implementations and results from the 20mph cities of Edinburgh and London as well as from Scottish Borders Council. An international perspective on 30km/h and 20mph limits will be given by the European Transport Safety Council and we will hear from Public Health professionals on the influence of street speeds on population health.
