20's Plenty for Us National Conference

18 Feb 2014
** Last chance to book **

The 5th 20mph conference focuses on how to roll out 20mph limits. 

Includes presentations, expert cases studies and workshops of implementations to improve the public realm, create healthy lifestyles, promote everyday exercise and reduce casualties. Learn the lessons from leading authorities, of how to get it right.

It’s “Time for 20” with many places around the UK now choosing over 90% of roads to go 20mph. It’s time to modernise signage rules to help the transition to 20mph limits cost effectively. 

Signing exceptions to 20mph makes sense since 20mph is becoming the new default urban and residential limit. This would cuts costs by 50%.

Who should attend?

  • Public health officers
  • Highways officers
  • Transport planners
  • Local councillors 
  • Key service providers
  • Police 
  • Campaigners

Rod King, Campaign Director of 20’s Plenty for Us said:-

“We now have some of the largest local authorities and most iconic cities setting 20mph limits for most urban and residential roads. With 20% of the population now living in such 20mph places, it’s time to recognise we are transitioning to a new urban realm where 20’s plenty. This conference looks at current best practice and considers how to move towards a planned national adoption of a 20mph limit for most residential and urban roads.”
