A 20mph speed trial in Dunbar, aimed at reducing road casualties and improving the quality of life, has been welcomed by local residents.
The experiment, introduced after a period of public consultation, will run until June 2015.
The area covers all roads south of the East Coastline rail line west of Spott Road, with the exception of Kellie Road.
Morag Haddow of Sustaining Dunbar, a member of the national ‘20’s Plenty for Us’ campaign, said: “Streets where people live, work and play are not just thoroughfares for cars. Slower traffic speeds make walking and cycling more appealing, making a short trip to school or to the local shops a pleasant experience and an opportunity for gentle exercise. Sustaining Dunbar hopes that 20mph limits will be rolled out to other areas before too long.”
