Reduced speed limits of 20mph are to be introduced on roads across Birmingham.
The '20 is plenty' pilot scheme will be rolled out across parts of the centre, east and south of the city.
This pilot 20mph speed limit scheme is great news for Birmingham - especially if you want to walk or cycle. We know from similar schemes elsewhere in the country that reducing the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph can significantly increase the numbers of walkers and cyclists and that can only be a good thing."
