Bristol's residential areas could be subject to a 20mph limit
Bristol has failed in its bid to become the European Green Capital for 2014 with Copenhagen announced as the winner yesterday evening.
Bristol finds out today whether or not it'll be crowned European Green Capital for 2014. It's one of only three in the final.
There's been a call for Bristol to think again about introducing a 20 mph speed limit right across the city. It comes as plans to extend the policy go out to consultation.
The aim is for all except the major routes to be 20 mph by 2015.
But today one councillor said a blanket scheme couldn't be enforced.
Bob Constantine reports:
Plans for a city wide speed limit of 20 miles per hour in Bristol are being discussed by the City Council's cabinet.
Conservative Transport spokesman Mark Weston has submitted formal written objections which will be debated.
He is urging Bristol Mayor George Ferguson not to go ahead with the scheme.
Bristol finds out today whether or not it'll be crowned European Green Capital for 2014. It's one of only three in the final, up against Copenhagen and Frankfurt. If Bristol wins, it's hoped the title will attract at least ten million pounds of new investment to the city.
