A parade to support Bristol's controversial 20mph zone roll-out will be held later this morning.
The rally will take place at Headley Park Primary School, in one of the final areas in the South of Bristol to adopt the limit. School children, parents and teachers will take part in the parade. The final phase of the scheme comes just a week after 8,000 people called on the council to stop it.
The rollout will see 20mph zones come into force in Bishopsworth, Brislington West, Hartcliffe, Hengrove, Stockwood, and Whitchurch Park.
Bristol City Council will debate its controversial 20 mile per hour speed zones later today.

As many as 80 roads across Plymouth could be reduced to 20mph in a bid to crackdown on roadsafety.
The tough new measures, proposed by the City Council earlier this week and backed by Cllr Brian Vincent, will be part of a long term scheme to "make roads safer and save lives".
Restrictions will be introduced on roads in North Prospect, Ham, Leigham and Estover - including Wolseley Road, North Prospect Road and St Pancras Avenue.
But, the idea has polarised opinions in areas where it is already in use.
We are currently proposing reducing the speed limit in some areas of the city, as part of a range of measures.
The aim is to reduce the number and severity of road casualties among school pupils in the city, reduce speed in residential areas, and address local concerns that have been raised about traffic and transport issues.
However the RAC Foundation has warned that without adequate "traffic calming" or active enforcement by local authorities, the introduction of a 20mph zone will only lead to a marginal drop in speed.

The roll out of Bristol's controversial 20 miles per hour scheme continues this week.
Roads in the north west of the city from Southmead through to Avonmouth are the latest to adopt the lower speed limit.
The scheme aims to cut road deaths and make streets safer for all. This is the seventh of eight areas in the city. The final phase will be completed in September.
As a bid by Conservative councillors to halt the roll-out of Bristol's 20mph is blocked by the Bristol Mayor, George Ferguson tells us why he is championing them.
A move to halt the roll-out of Bristol's 20mph speed restrictions has been thwarted.
Conservative councillors claim the limits are being ignored by motorists and are making some roads more dangerous. At a meeting of full council they proposed a motion asking Bristol Mayor George Ferguson to give Neighbourhood Partnerships the powers to identify, prioritise and agree appropriate 20mph speed zones for their communities.
The motion was passed by councillors but the Mayor has the final say and he says he is committed to seeing the £2.3m scheme through.
