20mph It’s miles better! The conference at the heart of the 20mph revolution

Milan is the latest European city to say that 20’s Plenty, or more precisely 30k – Its OK

In the UK we are at the heart of that change with over 20% of the population in places that have or are implementing a 20mph limit for most roads.

The 6th Annual 20mph Places conference is in the Guildhall, Cambridge on 12th March and at a cost from just £125* this could be the best investment made all year.

  • It brings together presenters showing best practice implementations of city-wide 20mph limits in some of our major iconic conurbations.
  • It develops the public health and public sector equality benefits
  • It shows how it is a foundation for a cycling revolution and an urban renaissance.

Learn how 20mph limits go far beyond road safety and tick the many boxes for liveability, active travel, modal shift, noise reduction, casualty reduction and a real saving in future public health costs. Learn how funding can come from many sources rather than transport or road safety. Understand how your PSED relates to setting speed limitsFor Councillors

Gain from the real experience of implementations in Cambridge where zones with physically calmed entrances are leading the way in hybrid zonal 20mph limits. Find out about the large roll-out in Manchester and it promotion of community ownership.
