20mph zone in the West End #dundeewestend

I am grateful to all residents who have given feedback to me regarding the new 20mph zone in the Perth Road Lanes and district shopping centre.

Provided as a result of funding through Sustrans' "Spaces for People" programme, it is one of four new temporary 20mph zones in the city - the others being in Fintry, Broughty Ferry and Douglas.

As residents know, I have long campaigned for 20mph zones in residential areas to provide a safer environment, paricularly for children out playing and the elderly and I am very pleased with the positive feedback to the new zone already - including comments that it could be extended to other residential areas of the West End.

I hope that, if deemed successful, it will be made permanent and will be the catalyst for an expansion of 20mph zones in residential areas across Dundee.
