The proposed reduction to the speed limit should have a beneficial effect on the environment. The impacts of the pilot schemes have already been monitored by the council and findings published in a Monitoring Report in March 2012.

As part of the citywide rollout we will monitor:

  • traffic speeds
  • road casualties
  • walking and cycling levels
  • before and after attitudes and perceptions
  • journey times
  • bus surveys

When the analysis is complete, a summary of the information will be published.
