    Connecting Woodside introduces 20mph zone
    As the Glasgow area of Woodside becomes the latest in Scotland to adopt 20mph speed limits, Sustrans Scotland Community Links PLUS Project Co-ordinator Marie Davis takes a look at what the benefits of lower speeds mean for people on foot and bike as well as for local communities.
