20mph public consultation

Closed 6 Jun 2021

Opened 10 May 2021


As part of the Scottish Government/SUSTRANS Spaces for People programme Scottish Borders Council introduced a trial roll out of 20mph speed limits last October to encourage more active travel as lockdown eases and is now looking to obtain the views and experiences of pedestrians, cyclists, residents, businesses and drivers.  The  focus of the survey is on road safety and quality of life in relation to the introduction of the 20mph speed limits and to gather information on whether any streets should remain at 20mph and if any should revert back to 30mph.
