Once Scotland implements its planned national 20mph norm by 2025 over half of the 204 UK highway authorities will have rejected the old national default limit of 30mph as no longer fit-for-purpose to meet their 21st century requirements for road danger, live-ability, active travel and public health.


This conference will highlight both the national 20mph limit set by Wales in September and also the plans in Scotland for its 20mph roll-out by 2025. 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 as well as the view from Public Health professionals. 

The conference will give valuable insights into the developing best practice around 20mph limits for anyone responsible for, or concerned about, transport, mobility, public health, air quality, live-ability, active travel and road danger.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Lee Waters MS, Deputy Minister for Climate Change - Wales

  • Kaarina Ruta, Transport Assistant, Welsh Local Government Association

  • Cllr Scott Arthur, Principal Policy Lead - Roads, City of Edinburgh Council

  • Ellen Townsend, Policy Director, European Transport Safety Council
