20mph roll out in the Scottish Borders

As part of the Spaces for People programme, Scottish Borders Council rolled out a temporary 20mph scheme across 97 settlements. On Thursday 16th December 2021, it was announced that 20mph will be the default speed limit across towns and villages in the Scottish Borders.

We hear from Philippa Gilhooly, Team Leader, Traffic and Road Safety, Scottish Borders Council and Greg Fountas, Lecturer, School of Engineering & the Built Environment, Edinburgh Napier University, who share how they used data and public feedback to convert this temporary 20mph trial to permanent.
